This U.S. Navy SEAL, Chris Kyle (Bradley Cooper) takes his sole mission -- protect his comrades -- to heart and becomes one of the most lethal snipers in American history. Viewers raved and rejoiced at the “accurate” and “beautiful” depiction of the life of a true American willing to risk everything for his country. Ask almost anyone in the south, they will tell you that “American Sniper” was inspirational. Yet, the “War on Terror” continues to be a hot debate topic. One of the points on tensions is how the majority of the country views the armed forces who fight and continue to fight in the name of American Interests.
This week consisted of five and a half days of brutally challenging operational training running on fewer than four hours of sleep. The trainees had to prove their endurance, mental toughness, pain and cold tolerance, and their ability to perform under duress and sleep deprivation. Above every other aspect, it tested their determination and desire to be a Navy SEAL. On average seventy-five percent of the candidates will ring the bell and accept defeat. This training is considered the hardest of all branches of the United States military.
This shows us how huge a challenge hell week is to a seal candidate, because with only getting four an a half hours of sleep you could lose your cool with fellow candidates. This test the seal candidate’s ability to overcome this by keeping them up so long. After 36 hours of sleep deprivation studies have shown that males who are 36 cognitive functions are decreased to those of an elderly person. This would make carrying 100 pound logs overhead, paddling boats through high surf, and performing calisthenics very hard, but the men who are able to overcome these challenges, and show us how powerful the idea of mental toughness is.

Stealth is the one trait that special forces utilize the best, because in every operation they must be quite in order to accomplish their tasks. Delta Force is one of the many special forces that use stealth to their advantage, which is why they are the most feared elite forces in the world. In recent conflicts Delta Force has been victorious in hostage rescue operations during the Iraq war in 2003, one example is the rescue of three or four private contractors from enemy held territory. Another example on how stealth helped them was when they went into an ISIS prison and freed the hostages held in the prison.

These struggles are shown in the story when it says, “but after five attempts, they were no farther into the United States than they’d been the first night” (Ryan 91). After trying to cross with no success, Marco wishes he would’ve stayed home because the next method trying to get across is under the hood of a car (Ryan 92).
