Navy to investigate SEAL after a sailor's death revealed widespread drug use, physical abuse, and medical neglect among recruits


Recommended Posts

The Navy has ordered an independent investigation of its SEAL training course after a sailor's death revealed widespread drug use, physical abuse, and medical neglect among recruits, The New York Times reported.

24-year-old Seaman Kyle Mullen died this year after he collapsed following his completion of the Basic Underwater Demolition/SEALs, or BUD/S, course, which is known for extreme training methods including exercises underwater with bound hands, lugging heavy logs and inflatable boats across the sand, and punishing situps and plunges in the frigid surf.
