From the Author

American Badass is my book about mentoring and inspiring others to “Be all they can be.” It’s not about being a tough guy; but rather it’s about being a good citizen, American, patriot, father, husband, and warrior. It is, as I jokingly say, about being a “Goodass!” I use my life stories as mediums to compel others to break paradigms that limit their potential and through self-actualization reach new levels of success. My book is not all about me as it is as much about you.

 

If you’re looking to read a book because you are only interested in comparing the author’s literary style to other books then this book is not for you. If you are interested in reading a substantive book about the life of a special operations and clandestine services operative that lived in an enigmatic world, then this book is for you. Because of the nature of this book it had to be written with discretion and operational security in mind to avoid compromising secret information and establishing clear attributions to secret organizations and related operations.

I wrote this book on the urging of many friends and associates. In fact, I made my decision to write the book in September 2012 while I was on the set of Stars Earns Stripes, speaking with Chris Kyle, the author of American Sniper. As we discussed his book, he looked at me and said to everyone nearby–“I am waiting to read your book, Dale.” It was at that point I decided it was time to write.

I didn’t want the book to just be about my combat experiences and me. I wanted to reach out to our young men, young women, fathers, and mothers and tell them a story about successful parenting and what I think it means to succeed on personal merit, hard work, and sacrifice. I decided to use my life experiences as the medium to mentor. I find myself in a country where traditional values are being replaced by a prevailing and metastasizing sense of entitlement, where hard work and personal excellence are no longer the cornerstones for success, where young men and boys have become apathetic and their heroes are virtual characters in video games, where street football is played out on a couch in front of a wide screen TV whilst many look to their left and right and see their fathers, who should be their mentors, life coaches, and leaders, lying on the couch, overweight, or feet propped up in a recliner, beckoning the wife to fetch another beer and bag of chips!

American Badass is a story inspired by my journey from boyhood to manhood, from innocence to a world of extreme violence, from a paltry and humble existence to a life enriched through determination, hard work, sacrifice, and the love of family. It is the story of the road less traveled–of failure and success by a Delta Force operator, a Green Beret, a husband, a father, and…an American.
