Welcome to Inside the Team Room: Navy SEAL Eric Davis – Challenges of Being a SEAL Dad

Eric Davis, an ex-Navy SEAL, writer for SOFREP, and the author behind “Raising Men: Lessons Navy SEALs Learned from Their Training and Taught to Their Sons,” shares insights into the complexities of parenthood while committed to the demands of SEAL life.

His experiences underscore the difficulty of balancing duty with family, particularly the significant periods he spent away from his children due to deployments and rigorous training schedules. Davis highlights the loss of critical, fleeting opportunities that parents seize to influence and mold their children’s character and reactions, a challenge familiar to many military families.
