Eventually, he graduated with a 3.95 GPA from the USNA, coming in 10th in his class. He went before the SEALs officer board review, and was given one of the few coveted slots to continue on to the BUD/S. SEAL training was grueling, and a few times Mike considered dropping out, but he managed to complete the training, and become of the SEAL teams officers.
He was assigned to SEAL team 1, and immediately saw action in the first Gulf War, in 1991.

For his actions there, and in various other classified operations in the Mid East, Mike was promoted to a Lieutenant (jg) and moved to a targeting/operations officer assigned to the HQ for SEAL Team 1 troop.
After about 10 years working with SEAL Team 1, Mike decided to pursue another career within the Navy, and by this time he had become a Lieutenant Commander.
