Ways Everyday Citizens Can Protect Themselves

Another terrorist attack—this time in London. Last night’s mayhem marks three major incidents in the last three months in the UK. Now more than ever, we need to do what we can to protect ourselves, our families and our fellow citizens. And this means all of us—regardless of our backgrounds or current professions. Much of […]

Among Heroes Trailer

We used to have two sayings in BUD/S (Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL) training that goes, “It pays to be a winner…”, and “It’s easier to keep up than catch up…”. These were lessons I learned the hard way in the “Goon” squad of first phase. This squad was where the slowest, special case, runners went after […]

“Among Heroes” Approved By DOD Office of Pre-Publication & Security Review

Right before Christmas I received confirmation that my next book Among Heroes was approved by the DOD for publication (with some minor redactions). This book is by far the best work John and I have done together. The process was incredibly challenging and therapeutic at the same time. How do you write a book about all your […]

Draper Kauffman: Father of the Underwater Demolition (UDT)/SEAL Teams

(Featured image: Divers from UDT-2 and UDT-4 Courtesy of Tom Hawkins) I’ve been taking a look back into the past lately in an attempt to better understand the roots of the Navy’s Underwater Demolition Teams (UDT). UDT history is something that’s only covered very briefly in SEAL training, surprisingly enough. One name that I couldn’t […]

The Gun Problem in America

Mass shootings in America have become something of a national past time. A lot of young men, frustrated with life, overmedicated, armed with the fresh realization that everyone ISN’T a WINNER in life, go get guns and shoot people. In 2008 America had over 12,000 deaths at the end of a firearm, compared to 11 […]

Squaw Valley Lake Tahoe

Just moved to Lake Tahoe Nevada this year and I’ve been putting my season pass to good work.  I’ve been hitting the upper mountain at Squaw Valley hard on my new boards (186 Armada TST’s). Also looking forward to sharing my place at Lake Tahoe with my friends this winter. -Brandon +

This is me with Castor (Belgian Malinois) at my friend and former SEAL Teammate Mike Ritland’s property in Texas. Mike trains some of the best protection and Military working dogs in the world,hands down. When I needed a special and highly trained dog I knew exactly where to go and called Mike straight away.

UPDATE: NAVY SEAL Watch Maker Rob Smith of RESCO Instruments & My New Red CIRCLE GMT Date (Limited Edition) Watch

In case you haven’t noticed. RESCO Instruments is the ONLY watch company that is Navy SEAL owned and operated in the world. Rob has been tinkering with watches since he was ten and long before he became a Navy SEAL. I served with him at TEAM THREE and always wondered why he would walk around […]

My New Icon

My good friend and fellow surfer Igor (also former Israeli IDF) helped me design this BW  icon. The original inspiration came from a collaboration by my friend Sean and his wife.  We originally wanted to combine the SEAL Land-Air & Sea elements into my initials.  The BW is tied to Neptunes Trident that ultimately represents […]

CZ 550 Urban Sniper Rifle Review: WEBB Score: 80 out of 60-100

The CZ550 Urban Sniper rifle I reviewed (pictured here) is chambered for 308win, has a Night Force scope (3.5-15 power) and the barrel is fitted to accept a SureFire suppressor (not tested). While I would not have this in my personal collection, this is a great utility rifle that would make a good deer rifle, be at home on the ranch and makes a decent […]
