why do people cry at SERE school?
2 years, 4 months ago on SERE School: myths vs. reality
I never cried....
Myth #1: Instructors are allowed to break one bone in your body during the POW portion of SERE. This is incorrect. While in the detention facility, students are placed under some level of physical duress but this is closely monitored and supervised to ensure that it does not get out of control. SERE is a very professionally run school and has to be for just this reason.
So this is why I watched a soldier get his eyeball slashed by in Instructor with long finger nails during training. This soldier "soldiered" on, but eventually got dropped because his eye ball was ruined. It was sad. Is this why a month later, a Marine I spoke with said the same Instructor, with the same long finger nails, once again, committed the same act? Closely monitored my ass, this man should have been placed under probation and barred from committing these career ending injuries. "It's just business" my ass, if I ever saw this man on the street, I would beat him with a baseball bat and leave him twitching and bleeding and pleading for his life.
That being said, there are great instructors there, but some are a bit out of control, and don't know the LINE between training and seriously injury.
