Ep 74: Eddie Penney: A US Navy SEAL’s secret to being unafraid

Eddie Penney spent over 20 years serving his country, first as a US Marine, then as a US Navy SEAL. As a SEAL, Eddie was assigned to the highly elite Naval Special Warfare Development Group (DEVGRU) and was at the forefront of numerous life-threatening missions. His job as a breacher meant he was always the “first guy in the room” in an operation. But despite the incredible odds he overcame as a SEAL, he says his scariest challenge was suddenly having to take on the role of a single dad to his 3 young children.

You’ll hear:

  • The most important lesson Eddie learned during Phase 1 of SEAL training
  • What it was like as a hardened warrior to take on the role of a single dad and caretaker
  • The wake-up call Eddie got after seeing the widows and children of over 20 fellow SEALS who died in 1 day in Afghanistan
  • The surprising thing that changed Eddie’s life when he was struggling with guilt, anger, and emotional pain
  • Why he wrote his book, Unafraid, and what it’s about
