Hostage Rescue Team Selection Process
June 6, 2016
Deputy Director Sean Joyce describes how HRT operators are selected.
The point of the selection—I think most people understand this going in—is to break you down and to see how you’re going to perform under stress.
So when you don’t get a lot of sleep over 14 days, sometimes you’re just going on one or two hours a day, over a prolonged period of time, it’s going to break you down pretty quickly. And I think you find out what people are made of once you get to that base level.
