Special Forces soldiers undergo a selection procedure which eliminates mentally weak soldiers from further participation while their later training is aimed at bolstering the mental fitness and durability of the candidates who have successfully passed the selection.Boot camps and selection courses are designed to wipe out the mentally weak candidates, not the physically inept soldiers. Everybody can obtain physical fitness through training, therefore most military boot camps, as tough and physically demanding they are, don’t focus primarily on the physical.
