Transgender Woman Reveals She Served As A Navy SEAL For 20 Years

 

 

” A retired Navy SEAL is poised to blow the doors off the military’s policy on transgender people.

Kristen Beck was a member of the most elite special operations unit in the world — SEAL Team 6. She deployed 13 times. She earned a Purple Heart and a Bronze Star. She served in the same unit that killed Osama bin Laden.

Shortly before the bin Laden raid, in early 2011, she retired as a senior chief petty officer after serving 20 years.

Her name was Chris Beck back then. In a memoir that promises to change the way we think about transgender people and their service in the military, Beck, who is active on Twitter, writes about how she came to the realization that she was meant to live life as a woman.”
