Navy SEALS Team 6 unit member is transgender
I’m not alone when i say that she’s a badass! Her anecdotes are all too familiar with any other transgender story you will hear. Very poignant.
THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — Team 6, the Navy SEALS unit that captured Osama Bin Laden, had a transgender member on the team. Kristin Beck, now retired from the Navy, recently appeared on CNN with Anderson Cooper to talk about being a closeted trans SEAL.
Even though Beck eventually spent 20 years in the service, she feared being killed in the field if word got out that she was trans. Even today, she told Cooper, there is fear when when she steps outside her door as transgender people are often killed just for who they are. She said there are many trans people serving our country silently and they deserve equality.
Beck says she fought for peace and liberty for 20 years and now she just wants peace and happiness for herself.
