When I was a young lad (~19-20 years old), I dreamed of becoming a Navy SEAL.
Mind you, this was around 20 years ago, and the internet was nothing like it is today.
There were no courses for prospective SEAL candidates being taught online. (like Stew Smith)
No forums I could talk with real life SEALs about BUD/S training.
No official SEAL / SWCC website with a wealth of Navy SEAL training resources.
No Youtube videos detailing every single evolution at BUD/S in excruciating detail.
No….there was none of that.
What there was, in my case, was something known as a BUD/S Warning Order.
According to the first page, prior to every mission in the SEAL Teams, a Warning Order is given explaining everything that is needed for the upcoming mission.
I can’t remember exactly where I got it, but I’m pretty sure it was given to me by a Navy recruiter.
I used it for several years as I trained for BUD/S, but ultimately never signed up for military service.
In any event, I have taken pictures of every page of the BUD/S Warning order and combined them into an easy PDF.
Click on the image below to download it, and use it as a training resource as you prepare for BUD/S.
