Ventura was NEVER IN THE SEALS
stop repeating this nonsense.
Ventura served as a U.S. Navy Underwater Demolition Team member during the Vietnam War
The Underwater Demo teams were not expanded to the SEALS until 1983
In 1983, the UDTs were re-designated as SEAL Teams or Swimmer Delivery Vehicle Teams (SDVTs). SDVTs have since been re-designated SEAL Delivery Vehicle Teams
The extra responsibilities then given to SEALS as an elite force happened after 1983.
When Ventura was in the Navy he was just in the underwater demo team there was no SEALS at all in existence when he was in the Navy. None, Zilch.. And he never did what SEALS do. All he did was underwater demolitions, he was a trained frogman is all.
The seals did not become the elite force it is until after it's redesignation and changes came to that department
My Uncle was a real Navy Seal and he himself says Ventura was never and will never be a SEAL and him claiming to be one is a dishonor and insult to REAL Navy Seals

Any respect I had for Ventura just went out the window.
How could he sink this low. If he had an issue with Kyle, that ended with his death. Be a man and let it go Jesse.

It's disgusting that anyone would make a profit or seek publicity on another persons death.
I'm not American, however it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that Messrs Ventura and Alex Jones are only in it for themselves. They are the ultimate conrtrarians, claiming to love their country in one statement but degrading it in another.
What really needs to happen is for people to ignore these charlatans, there are plenty of other people doing far more for your country. Ranting about HAARP and bohemian grove doesn't help anyone, If they really give a $*!T then they'd get behind more positive causes such as healthcare and homelessness.
But they don't. Alex Jones is a shock jock, and Ventura is a joke.

Actually, the Navy Seals originated in the 1960's. President Kennedy wanted the group. My uncle was one of the first and yes they came from the UDT's. In Vietnam, they were different though.
You got it all wrong, probabaly because you're not American & are completely unfamiliar with the facts, and I'll just leave it at that.
