A compelling look at US Navy SEALs through a true-to-life lens focused on the triumphs and challenges of the elite warriors of the Special Forces community. Master Chief (SEAL) Rick Kaiser (Ret.) captures over 45 years of events in and around the SEAL Teams. It is not a blood-and-guts portrayal of battlefield victories and losses, but an authentic view of how things are done in the Teams. The SEALs truly are silent professionals and the most memorable stories often don’t feature combat but are the moments that shape these exceptional warriors.
A Silver Star recipient for his leadership during the battle of Mogadishu—“Black Hawk Down”—and a prominent member of both SEAL Team TWO and SEAL Team Six, Rick has been recognized throughout his career for his courage, commitment, and fortitude. Continuing to serve the SEALs as Chief Operating Officer of the National Navy UDT-SEAL Museum, Rick is the perfect person to tell the Navy SEAL story the way it really is, sharing the life and leadership lessons he learned along the way.
“Rick Kaiser was a legend in the SEAL Teams for his courage, his leadership and his unparalleled professionalism. Read this book and you will know why!” ~Admiral William McRaven Navy SEAL and author of "Make Your Bed" and "Sea Stories"
"Legendary Navy SEAL Master Chief Rick Kaiser has picked up the pen to capture and pass on lessons from his decades of service at the very tip of the special operations spear. From SEAL Team TWO to SEAL Team SIX, the Cold War, Bosnia, Mogadishu, the War on Terror, to the Navy SEAL Museum, he continues to set the example and hold the standard, always leading from the front. His words are as honest and true as the man himself; unapologetic and engrossing, Frogman Stories: Life and Leadership Lessons from the SEAL Teams will occupy a place of honor on my shelf." ~Jack Carr, former Navy SEAL Sniper and #1 New York Times bestselling author of "The Terminal List"
