Saw this on CBS...the reach of drug abuse goes far and wide throughout even the elite of the military.

Wow this is a surprise, but yet it isn't.  I can see pills for pain or anxiety, but not drugs like cocaine.  SEALS are intriguing to me...highly trained warriors, mentally and physically.  I finally got to see the movie recently, The Lone Survivor and I just could not believe what a SEAL is trained to endure.   Marcus Luttrell is one badass SEAL.  If you like SEAL stuff, you must watch the new series Six on the History Channel.  It only had about 6 episodes...but their life was hard to imagine on a personal level as well as a professional level.  I can't imagine what haunts their brain.

It does, but aren't these guys tested randomly?  That usually stops folks from using recreational drugs.  Would they be dismissed if they show a positive...for coke?   You would think the training that is involved for SEALS is something to consider.

Random testing is done more on troops stationed in non combat zones...no time for that elsewhere...remember, these are still kids for the most part.
