A retired U.S. Navy SEAL and author said one night at church saved him from himself.
Chad Williams served in that branch of the military from 2004 to 2010. He spoke in Springfield to The Gathering on Wednesday morning, saying he decided to become a SEAL to mature, make an impact and not be an “Average Joe,” despite his family’s objections. The Gathering is a men’s Christian organization.
His father decided to introduce him to the lifestyle before his training began and got in contact with one of the most decorated Navy SEALs, Scott Helvenston.
