Thanks to men like him

Antelope Valley Press (Sunday) - - Opinion -

The Navy SEALS are the ul­ti­mate war fight­ers.

Very few young men could even sur­vive the ini­tial train­ing that all SEALS go through.

Chief Ed­die Gal­lagher spent al­most 20 years know­ing that at any mo­ment, he would have to grab his gear, jump in an airplane and be de­ployed to some re­mote cor­ner of the world where his gov­ern­ment wanted cer­tain peo­ple who posed a threat to Amer­ica elim­i­nated.

Chief Gal­lagher did re­spond to his gov­ern­ment’s orders to com­bat sit­u­a­tions many times dur­ing his ca­reer and Amer­ica is safer for it.

I am thank­ful that we have men like Chief Gal­lagher and that he sur­vived many bat­tles and pros­e­cu­tion by his own gov­ern­ment.
