It’s an explosive revelation that is the subject of a new memoir — and plenty of water cooler chat.
A former Navy SEAL who at one time served in the elite Team 6 responsible for capturing Osama bin Laden , has come out as a transgender woman.
Kristin Beck, formerly known as Chris Beck, served 20 years in the military’s most elite unit.
It was after the takedown of bin Laden in 2011 when Beck retired and finally addressed her life-long struggle of being a woman trapped in a man’s body.
According to Beck, the reason behind the shocking admission was to reach out to the younger generation , to encourage them to live life fully — treating everyone with compassion.
