I Am a SEAL Team Six Warrior

I Am a SEAL Team Six Warrior

by Howard E. Wasdin Illustrated by Stephen Templin

When the U.S. armed forces want something done right, they send the Navy SEALs, the world's most deadly and highly trained soldiers. But when they want it done perfectly, they send Team Six, the secret unit composed of the very best SEAL warriors.

This young reader's edition of the adult bestseller SEAL Team Six introduces Howard Wasdin, who overcame childhood adversity to become one of the best snipers on the planet. Readers follow Wasdin's training from Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL (BUD/S) — the longest, most grueling course of military training in the world — through his deployment in Operation Desert Storm as part of SEAL Team Two, and on to the fulfillment of his dream: becoming a member of the legendary SEAL Team Six.

In the pages of this eye-opening memoir, Wasdin takes teens inside the secret world of CIA safe houses; chronicles a day-by-day hunt for one of the most feared enemies in the world; and, finally, describes his role in one of the most dramatic military operations in recent history.

An exciting 16-page photo insert follows Wasdin through every stage of his life and training and includes never-before-seen photos of SEAL Team Six warriors in action.
