GRP 128-The 20 Year Journey of a Navy SEAL Sniper: Jack Carr
On for this week’s podcast is former Navy SEAL Officer turned author Jack Carr. He led special operations teams as a Team Leader, Platoon Commander, Troop Commander and Task Unit Commander. Over his 20 years in Naval Special Warfare he transitioned from an enlisted SEAL sniper specializing in communications and intelligence, to a junior officer leading assault and sniper teams in Iraq and Afghanistan. He was on a pre 9/11 training deployment on Guam when the Twin Towers were hit. His team immediately deployed to the middle east to take over ship take down operations against Saddam Hussein from SEAL Team 3 who rotated into Afghanistan.
Jack has written a fictional novel called “The Terminal List” and has a second book on the way called “True Believer”. Enjoy.
