On my America Weekend show today, I spoke with Ellis Henican about “Damn Few: Making The Modern Seal Warrior,” which he co-wrote with Rorke Denver, former head of training for Navy Seals.

We discussed how someone is chosen and then what they have to go through to become a Seal, why the US has been relying more on Seals and other special forces over the last decade, and how they’ve handled some of their missions. I also asked him why we have so few (around 2,500) Seals, and what it’s like for them when they return to civilian life. Listen, then click here to subscribe to these podcasts via iTunes!
