Well here goes. I have been training my whole life for military because I don't like the fact men and women are dying while I am sitting in a classroom. I am usually good at making up my mind and have read into everything about SF. I am at Seal level but I don't like that seals are in the spotlight of the world right now I want to be more of the quiet soldier. So I have narrowed it down to army or marines due to them having the type of forces I like but what about you who do you prefer?

You are not at "Seal level." It's more about mentality than physical fitness. It doesn't matter how fit you are they make you exercise until you're past your breaking point (believe me you've never gone as hard as they'd make you go) and then they observe and see how you deal with a task when you're past that breaking point. The biggest most fit looking dudes tend to actually be some of the first that wash out. It doesn't matter how fit you are if you have the wrong mentality which it seems you do.
If you want to be in SF Army has more options. With marines it's either Force Recon or MARSOC. With Army you can sign up to be a Ranger right away. You go to ranger school right after basic. If you want Green Berets you have to have a really high score on your PT tests and you have to stand out during your tour of duty. I'm actually more impartial for Marines than Army but your options are greater if SF is your goal. Don't even think about Delta Force you'd have to be in the Army for several years and stand out even amongst the Rangers/Green Berets for them to even invite you to come try out for them where the attrition rate is still really high.0
