Admiral McRaven was a former Navy SEAL, so he would know.

So... ninjas are quieter and SEALs are better at blowing things up?

Surprisingly, McRaven replied to the youngster with a missive of his own, writing, “To answer your questions: I think ninjas are probably quieter than SEALs, but we are better swimmers, and also better with guns and blowing things up.”

McRaven also added, “I can hold my breath for a long time, but I try not to unless I really have to.”

The military chief then closed with some words of wisdom, specially suited for Walker, who reportedly aspires to become a SEAL.

“Remember, if you want to be a SEAL, you must do two things: listen to your parents and be nice to the other kids. If you do that then you can probably be a SEAL, too."
