Greetings Folks;

As intriguing as it may be to see the various responses, the only valid replies would be from those who have gone through all of the various boot camps, thus validating the opinion. Conjecture is what the typical news media outlets base a lot of their data on, thus relegating it to the value of an opinion based on no experience.

Not trying to sound negative or anything, but what I think is worthless & meaningless unless it is based on life's experiences. Obviously, all of the training programs are "tough" to a certain extent... but even the toughest (which ever it is) will have its vulnerabilities.

I see that the BUDS (Navy SEALS) scored the toughest and Army Ranger Tranining second. My question is if this is true why is it that the Navy sends some of their SEALS through the Army Ranger Training and pay big buck $ for the course...I'm not knocking them, I was a Ranger Training Instructor and have watched the SEALS in training they are tough and good students we are only hopefull they are tougher and more wiser after graduation. My reguards go's out to all service members, keep your powder dry and nose in the wind.

Sorry Guys, but you can't get near SAS training for something that kicks butt.

In Canada I'd say it's Joint Task Force for sheer physical effort, but SAR (Search and Rescue) training is toughest for combined physical, mental and technical capabilities. Many apply, but few are chosen.

Being British I believe that the SAS and SBS trining schemes are the toughest, followed by Russian Spetznaz and French (urk!) Foreign Legion :)
