My repeat guest, friend, former Navy SEAL, and author of the James Reece series which includes Terminal List, True Believer, and his newest (released today), Savage Son.
His name is Jack Carr and I take every opportunity I can to talk with him. And, if you’ve listened to any of our previous episodes, you’ll know exactly why. Jack is one of the most genuine men I know and I’ve always been fascinated with his transition from warrior to author.
Today, we talk about putting yourself in the public eye, pursuing something you’ve always been interested in, how military combat compares to civilian life and the life of a writer and forging the path you’ve always wanted to walk.
“Social media is my storefront.” Tweet That— Jack Carr
My guest today is the one and only Jack Carr. He spent over 20 years in Naval Special Warfare as a SEAL Sniper, Troop Commander, and a Task Unit Commander leading a team in Iraq and Afghanistan.
It’s probably a big reason his last three books are so extremely credible – he’s used his decades of combat experience as the foundation for the immense amount of research that goes into his works.
Jack is also an avid hunter, a husband, and a father. He’s also a helluva guy as I’ve gotten to know him over the past several years and enjoyed our friendship.
And an update since we originally recorded this episode at SHOT Show several months ago, Jack’s book, Terminal List will become a TV Series with Chris Pratt playing James Reece.
I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as I did.
