A lot of Army and Navy veterans have served and worked with Spec Ops in one capacity or another and have friends in such units. It's not as uncommon as some would think.
There are also a lot of legitimate former SEALS, DELTA, GBs and such in the civilian world as well. Turnover in such units is staggeringly high just due to the intense, physical demands of the work and it's almost scary how many such soldiers wind up out of the military on disability due to things as simple as blown knees, injured backs and other physical consequences of the ongoing training alone.
