It isn't on the list, but thats even worse than infantry.  He wants a job where he doesn't have to shoot or be shot at, and SF is definatly one that is even more hazardous than regular infantry, mainly because you get sent into the hottest combat zones INTO the enemy.

Wrong for the most part. Special Forces does a lot of covert operations and reconnaissance, meaning they often times don't have direct contact with the enemy on a regular basis. Occassionally, yes, they are engaged in operations which pitch them into various combat zones, but many of the SF units are designed more for covert and reconnaissance operations. It all really depends on the unit's objective.

Considering the fact that reconnaissance operations cant take place unless you are around the enemy, then yes, it is very dangerous.  They may not always be fighting, but when you are inside an enemy compound for recon or outside of it for surveillance...they usually are pretty close to the enemy.  While they do have the upperhand with their great training and element of suprise...they are in as much danger as any other ground pounder out there.

How much danger they're in was never in question. I did not say they're never in danger.

You stated that they are "sent into the hottest combat zones INTO the enemy", and it was that statement that I consider incorrect. Reconnaissance usually keeps somewhat of a range between the enemy and themselves. Many times their objective is to collect intelligence by taking photographs, filming, and tape recording. They are usually not carrying a lot of gear on them, and stress quick mobility to get in and out of a situation.

I suppose, depending on the context that you were using "INTO the enemy", you could be correct. Yes, they are around the enemy, but not in the thick of it like the standard infantry is. At least, not the majority of the time. But, hey, what do I know? I only served in the Marine Corps for 8 years.
