    A friend of mine was a SARC in the in the late 90's.

    Of note, when going to the website listed on the vid, you have to register to see any thing and give your SS#....I'd be weary of doing that.

    I may get torn apart for this, but by watching the video I noticed that SARC seems to do a lot of what a SEAL team would do. How does SARC differ form The SEALs?

    SEALs operate more independently I suppose. Marine Recon is utilized more as an element for a MEU as far as I know. Other than that, SEALs have much better PR going for them and fancier toys. SEALs probably get a bit more diverse training as well.

    I'm not sure I follow your question. SARC/SARC IDC corpsmen are Navy medical personnel trained for, and assigned to, Marine reconnaissance units to provide combat trauma and ALS care. If you're asking what's the difference between SARC corpsmen and SEAL corpsmen, they're very similar jobs. The training pipeline is very similar aside from the obvious difference that a SEAL corpsman goes through BUD/S and SQT and wears a Trident.

    I think he meant the difference between Marine Recon and SEALs.

    question, can CO's join any type of SF? or do you have to be a E or NCO going in to training?

    COs? I'm guessing you mean can you be an O and join any SOF? Pretty much every SOF in the US military is lead up by some type of officer.
