About Jack CarrJack Carr holds his early life close to his chest, but his very date of birth, July 3rd, might have been the first inspiration for his life of service. His mother was a librarian and made sure her son grew up with a love of books. The Iran Hostage Crisis in 1979, four years after he was born, affected him strongly. Learning about terrorism and guerilla warfare, he watched Walter Cronkite’s updates about the captivity of the Americans. Later he commented on “those pictures and then the evolving face of terrorism throughout the 80s. That time was particularly impactful to me. I was a serious kid growing up, because I knew that was going to be my war. That was going to be my enemy for my generation, and I studied it.” He joined the Navy in 1996 to follow his grandfather who had died during military service in World War II. He worked his way up, starting as an enlisted SEAL sniper to become an officer leading teams in Iraq and Afghanistan. Functioning as a platoon commander in the Philippines, he later returned to Iraq to spearhead a Special Operations Task Unit. After 20 years, he left the military but maintained his connection by supporting several organizations focused on helping veterans with PTSD:
- Valor for Life
- Rescue 22 Foundation
- Special Forces Charitable Trust
- Special Operations Care Fund
- Big Hearts under the Big Sky
