My father was a sailor in the US Navy. He was also a brother in a band that so many men (from all walks of life) try to become, in a place where only few make the cut. My father was a special operator; a Frogman, but better known by most as a Navy SEAL. Growing up a “SEAL PUP” in the early 80’s didn’t impact me in the same way that it does now. I’m sure it has something to do with being able to understand the job of being a SEAL – what these men do, what they go through, the risks of the job, and the challenges and sacrifices that they and their families must accept and make.
