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.

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.

GRP 106-Chantel Taylor is back on the podcast co-hosting for this episode. We have a special guest on with us “Turbo” who is a retired Navy SEAL. Turbo served as a SEAL for a number of years. After 9/11 he became the second amputee of the war. He couldn’t give details but he was wounded upon insertion into an area attempting to rescue Americans. He was rescued after 18 hours in -20-degree weather on a 10,000-foot mountaintop.

 

His leg was amputated below the knee. After 9 months of rehabilitation, he rejoined his team and deployed into combat. We talked about his experiences going through BUDs (Basic Underwater Demolitions/SEAL) training. We touched on the mental and physical aspects of overcoming a difficult situation. After retiring from the Navy Turbo has done a number of events and competitions in honor of wounded and fallen warfighters all over the country.

 

We discussed Everence and his role in it. Everence encapsulates DNA which can be inserted into a new or existing tattoo. Enjoy.
