If you’re a protection officer, chances are you’ve read a Jack Carr novel (or six) while in a down room or taking a break in a follow car. Whether you’re in the field of protection, a retired officer, or want to escape into an adrenaline-filled place of being a Navy SEAL sniper, pick up one of Jack’s novels and you’ll accomplish that and more.

In this episode, Fred Burton discusses Jack’s path from Navy SEAL and Special Operations Task Unit Commander to bestselling author. It’s fair to say Jack’s life has been transformed by his leadership and training experience as a SEAL, and with 80% attrition to get through “hell week” this isn’t a task for the faint at heart. His main character, James Reece, embodies the feelings and emotions during his time as a soldier. They discuss the level of research that goes into his novels, his intentional plan to become an author one day, and Jack’s everyday carry, or EDC (hint: this is not a response you’ll want to miss).

Jack Carr is a New York Times bestselling author and former Navy SEAL. He lives with his wife and three children in Park City, Utah. He is the author of The Terminal List, True Believer, and Savage Son. His newest book, The Devil’s Hand, is set to release on April 13, 2021.
