Bell Curve


On your first big assignment, you tripped over a fallen branch and landed flat on your face in the mud. The enemy likes to call this "shooting fish in a barrel."


You have completed your first successful mission. You weren't the star of the show, but you had a job to do and you got it done. The operation wasn't entirely without incident, but who really needs both of their legs anyway?


You've been a SEAL for almost five years, and you are well-respected. Anyone who is able to dodge bullets and defeat the bad guys for half a decade is worthy of respect.


You are an old, weathered senior officer. Stories of your courageous acts are legendary. You've got more medals than Michael Phelps.


You got Osama. Nice work, soldier.
