Today we have retired Navy Seal Jason Redman on The Dad Edge podcast. He is a hero, a speaker, and the author of The Trident: The Forging and Reforging of a Navy SEAL Leader. Jason has gone through extreme adversity and his story demonstrates astounding mental toughness and resilience.
During a military operation on Sept 13, 2007, he took two hits to his arm and a shot to his face. His ironfisted determination helped him cheat death, come home alive, and heal from his injuries. You’ll hear the incredible story of the famous sign he posted outside his hospital room and also get his advice on how to be a man and a father. Brace yourself for tremendous inspiration!

Jason comes from a long line of family who served in the military. He knew he wanted to be a Seal since he was a kid. He was always fascinated with heroes. In the late 80s early 90s there was very little info about the teams and the mystique around the SEALs stoked his furnace and sparked his curiosity. No one would ever expect him to actually make his dream come true. He blossomed late when it came to athletics. In 9th grade he was still 5ft tall and 100 pounds. People laughed when he told them he wanted to be a SEAL.

In his early years, this attitude helped him push through situations, including the brutal BUD/S training. He made it to the SEALs and began his whirlwind of a military career.
