Chapter 1


Kyle grew up in central Texas. He loved to hunt and ride horses and would have

been a cowboy if he had not become a member of the Navy Sea, Air, Land

Teams (SEAL). He had a lot of fun hunting with his mom, dad, and brother as a

child. His dad and brother were his best friends growing up.


Kyle learned true patience by learning to break a horse. He got involved in rodeo

competitions to quench his thirst for being a cowboy. In 1992, he graduated and

went to Tarleton State University with aspirations to join the military afterward. 

An accident in his freshman year ended his rodeo career when he had to have

pins put in his wrist. He became a ranch hand for a man named David Landrum

while he was still a student. Landrum’s strict expectations made Kyle want to

prove himself. Kyle believes this prepared him to become a Navy SEAL.


Kyle decided to quit school and join the military. He learned about the SEALs and

wanted to become one. He investigated the opportunity further and learned that

there was no guarantee he would become a SEAL if he joined the Navy. He

would need to earn the privilege. Kyle went through the application process, but

the Navy disqualified him because of the pins in his wrist. He felt his military

career had ended before it began. He went back to work for Landrum and hoped

to become a rancher. Shortly afterward, a recruiter called and asked if he was

still interested in becoming a SEAL.
