Every man who earns the Trident gains a lifetime membership in an elite military fraternity.
If there is an essence that determines who will be a warrior, surely every SEAL shares that highly charged spirit. Shared sacrifice and brotherhood offer inherent rewards that most SEALs seem to absorb at their core.
“I walked away knowing that nothing had changed over the years. A SEAL today is the same SEAL of yesterday. I watched and talked to these younger warriors, some from the period soon after my time and others who are much newer and still in their 20’s today. The same closeness exists as if we were all from the same platoon in the same time period.”
