GRP 107- Joining us for this week’s podcast is a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps and the United States Navy SEALs. Eddie Penney began his military career as a Marine. After his first contract was up he enlisted into the Navy and began the grueling process to become a Navy SEAL. Eddie served multiple tours of duty as a SEAL before joining Naval Special Warfare Development Group which is better known as SEAL Team 6.  

 

Penney shared his experiences in BUDs with us. We talked about deploying into combat and having the mindset required to serve as an operator over several years of warfighting. We talked about the “Contingent Group” which is a security company that offers a wide variety of security services that Eddie has started since leaving the Navy. Enjoy.

GRP 103-On with me for this week’s podcast is Chief Warrant Officer (W-4), U.S. Navy, Boyd Renner. Renner served for 28 years in the Navy all of that time as a SEAL. He served for 23 years with the Naval Special Warfare Development Group (DEVGRU). DEVGRU is the Tier 1 counter-terrorism component of the Navy. With a total of 12 combat deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq Boyd has a unique perspective. We discussed his role in Operation Red Wings 2 which was the mission to locate and recover Marcus Luttrell, as well as the SEALs that were killed on the quick reaction helicopter that got shot down attempting to provide back up to Luttrell’s team. 

 

We discussed leadership, tactical medicine, the burning out of Special Operations Forces, and a new product which just released from Boyd’s company called Everence. Everence is a patented technology that allows you to add DNA from a loved one directly into any new or existing tattoo.
