A C-SPAN Q & A With Author And Former Navy SEAL Dick Couch

In light of the increased interest in Navy SEALs due to the bin Laden raid, this past Sunday C-Span interviewed Dick Couch, the author of seven books on Navy SEALs and Special Operations, as well as seven novels.

Former Navy SEAL Dick Couch has lectured widely, including as adjunct professor of ethics at the U.S. Naval Academy. He also acts as an advisor to the commander of U.S. Special Operations Command.

His latest book is The Sheriff of Ramadi, a nonfiction book about the role of the Navy SEALs in the al-Anbar province from 2005 to 2007. His next book, to be released in 2012, is called Sua Sponte: The Making of a Modern American Ranger.

Dick Couch became a member of the Underwater Demolition and SEAL Teams following his 1967 graduation from the U.S. Naval Academy. As a platoon leader in SEAL Team One in 1970, he led a POW rescue operation in Vietnam. His active duty in the military ended in 1972. He then joined the CIA as a Maritime Operations Officer.
