William McRaven


Last quote by William McRaven

They said he was too small, too thin, and not strong enough. But much like the young sailor in my class, Norris proved them all wrong and once again showed that it's not the size of your flippers that count, just the size of your heart.feedback

William McRaven has most recently been quoted in an article called What the commander of the bin Laden raid thinks you should know about leadership. William McRaven said, “I felt a pang of sorrow that someone had misled this fellow, maybe encouraged him to leave his comfortable life as a civilian and try SEAL training. This was Tom Norris, who battled back from his injury to be accepted into the FBI's first Hostage Rescue Team. This quiet, reserved, humble man was one of the toughest SEALs in the long history of the Teams. In 1969, Tommy Norris was almost booted out of SEAL training. It wasn't a speech about being a SEAL. These are life lessons that could be used by anyone from any generation.”. William McRaven has been quoted a grand total of 4 times in 1 article.
