During his 19 years as a U.S. Navy SEAL, Curt deployed 13 times leading the nation’s premier assault force in global high-risk combat operations, earning two Bronze Star medals for combat valor. His ability to build high-performance teams and forge unlikely alliances revolutionized the application of elite special operations units to defeat sophisticated international threat networks.
