Remembering 9/11: The Navy SEAL Sacrifice RePost from Sun Valley Magazine Blog
“In times of war or uncertainty there is a special breed of warrior ready to answer our Nation’s call; a common man with uncommon desire to succeed. Forged by adversity, he stands alongside America’s finest special operations forces to serve his country and the American people, and to protect their way of life. I AM THAT MAN.” – Excerpt from the Navy SEAL Code.
Imagine a man who recognizes that he is an ordinary man, “a common man with an uncommon desire to succeed.” For him and others like him, there is a desire born inside that grows in the blood, in the veins, pumping through the heart for years. This desire grows into a calling. It’s this sense of purpose, this overwhelming commitment to the calling that carries a man through the physical challenges he encounters on the road to becoming one of the elite, a Navy SEAL.
