Warrior Talk with GI Jenn is excited to have a STOLEN VALOR Special. We have two of the top guys when it comes to calling out STOLEN VALOR, Don Shipley and B.G. Burkett.
Don Shipley retired after 24-years as a SEAL Senior Chief in 2003. He served at SEAL Team ONE, SEAL Team TWO, the Naval Special Warfare Center (BUD/S) and Naval Special Warfare Group TWO, in Little Creek Virginia as a SEAL Advanced Training Instructor. When not in a SEAL Platoon or deployed overseas, his time was spent running blocks of training for SEALs in air operations, land warfare, and demolitions.
He served in eight SEAL Platoons, was Platoon Chief in five, and awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Medal for Heroism during a Search and Rescue
B.G. Burkett, a Vietnam veteran, served as a 1st LT with the 199th Lt. Infantry. He was awarded the Bronze Star, the Vietnamese Honor Medal and the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry with Palm. He is the co-author of Stolen Valor, which won the coveted Colby Award for outstanding military book. He was presented the Army’s highest award given to a civilian, the Distinguished Civilian Service Medal, by former President George H.W. Bush. In 2005, Mr. Burkett was inducted into the U.S. Army Ranger Hall of Fame. Also in 2005, Mr. Burkett and Congressman Salazar D-CO, introduced the Stolen Valor Act on Capitol Hill.
