Special Guest Speaker

Ben Milligan joins the Museum Muster this year. He will be giving a special historic lecture at 10:00 AM from the podium at Pepper Park. Don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to learn more about not just how the SEAL Teams evolved over time, but why they evolved. The answer to this question is important for the entire family of American Special Operations units.

A former SEAL who invested more than ten years researching and writing his book, By Water Beneath the Walls, Ben is well acquainted with US Special Operations history. His book will be available for purchase at Muster where he will be signing them for attending guests.

By Water Beneath the Walls

A gripping history chronicling the fits and starts of American Special Operations and the ultimate rise of the Navy SEALs from unarmed Frogmen to elite, go-anywhere commandos—as told by one of their own.

How did the US Navy—the branch of the US military tasked with patrolling the oceans—ever manage to produce a unit of raiders trained to operate on land? And how, against all odds, did that unit become one of the world’s most elite commando forces, routinely striking thousands of miles from the water on the battlefields of Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, even Central Africa?

Behind the SEALs’ improbable rise lies the most remarkable underdog story in American military history—former Navy SEAL Benjamin H. Milligan captures it as never before. Told through the eyes of notable leaders and racing from one longshot, hair-curling raid to the next, By Water Beneath The Walls is a tale of the unit’s heroic naval predecessors, and the evolution of the SEALs themselves. But it’s also the story of the forging of American special operations as a whole—and how the SEALs emerged from the fires as America’s first permanent commando force, when again and again some other unit seemed predestined to seize that role.

Here Milligan thrillingly captures the outsize feats of the SEALs’ Frogmen forefathers in World War II, the Korean War, and elsewhere, even as he plunges us into the second front of interservice rivalries and personal ambition that shaped the SEALs’ evolution. In equally vivid, masterful detail, he chronicles key early missions undertaken by units like the Marine Raiders, Army Rangers, and Green Berets, showing us how these fateful, bloody moments helped create the modern American commando—even as they opened up pivotal opportunities for the Navy. Benjamin H. Milligan also takes us alongside as the SEALs at last seize the mantle of commando raiding, and discover the missions of capture/kill and counterterrorism that would define them for decades to come.

Written with the insight that can only come from a combat veteran and a member of the book’s tribe, By Water Beneath the Walls is an essential new history of the SEAL teams, a crackling account of desperate last stands and unforgettable characters accomplishing the impossible—and a riveting epic of the dawn of American special operations.

BENJAMIN H. MILLIGAN became a US Navy SEAL in 2001. He is a recipient of the Bronze Star and other awards. A native of Indianapolis, he currently lives in the Chicago area and has three sons.

Jason is a former Division 1 Athlete and Navy SEAL Sniper. He holds an M.S. in Business Global Leadership and pitched for a top 25 nationally ranked NCAA baseball team prior to joining the Navy after the attacks on the World Trade Centers in 2001. On the path to professional baseball, his dream was crushed by a crippling case of performance anxiety known as the “yips.” Devastated but determined to overcome, he is now considered an expert in mental toughness and leadership development. He is the owner of Stonewall Solutions and the creator of the nationally acclaimed Fundamentals of Winning Program.

In the SEAL Teams, Jason lead reconnaissance, assault and mobility teams consisting of U.S and foreign troops with deployments to Afghanistan, Iraq, and Africa.

Jason works behind the scenes creating a blue print for mental toughness and a spinal cord for culture according to the dynamics of the organization. The unique training has shown proven results at all levels. New York Yankee Garrett Jones credited Jason in the NY Times as vital to his success and some of the highest levels of corporate America have endorsed his services with executives ranging from Bank of America, BAE Systems, Planet Fitness and many others!

Sara Wilkinson

Sara Wilkinson grew up the youngest child in a military family. Her upbringing helped her understand the stress, high cycle time of deployments, and frequent training trips, ultimately preparing her for a life married to Navy SEAL Chad Wilkinson. Chad served 21 years as an active duty Navy SEAL with more than 10 deployments before he succumbed to the effects of PTSD, TBIs, and blast wave injuries; he died by suicide on October 29, 2018, leaving behind Sara and their two teenage children.

Sara has worked in the fitness industry for more than 20 years. Recruited by CrossFit, LLC., Sara is a course supervisor, and has spent almost the last decade traveling the globe committed to public speaking, upholding the standards of certification, and instilling community and camaraderie. She is committed to using her voice and story to change the narrative and numbers lost to this veteran suicide epidemic.

Sara Wilkinson grew up the youngest child in a military family. Traveling the globe and attending over 15 schools before graduating prepared her for a life married to Navy SEAL, Chad Wilkinson. Her upbringing allowed her to understand the stress, high cycle time of deployments and frequent training trips, while furthering to instill her independence and resilience.

In addition to supporting her husband’s career, Sara has been working in the fitness industry for 20 years. Becoming a gym owner in the Virginia Beach area led her to being recruited for its larger organization, CrossFit, LLC. As a course supervisor, she spent the last eight years traveling the globe: public speaking, upholding the standards of certification and instilling community and camaraderie, regardless of time zones and language barriers. She holds a Bachelor of Science within the College of Health and Human Performance from the University of Florida.

Her husband served 21 years as an active duty Navy SEAL with more than 10 deployments. Unfortunately, Chad succumbed to the effects of PTSD, TBIs, and blast wave injuries leading him to die by suicide Oct. 29, 2018 and leaving behind Sara and their two teenage children.

She has seen firsthand the negative experiences among the SEAL community specific to multiple combat deployments, high cycle times, and too many friends lost, leaving lasting stress on the operators and their families. Sara fully intends to use her voice and her story to change the narrative and the number to this veteran suicide epidemic.

4th Annual Memorial Wall Challenge

The Memorial Wall Challenge was started as an event to recognize and honor the 308 men whose names are inscribed on The National Navy UDT-SEAL Memorial Wall.

These men gave their all, never quit, were all in all the time, and ultimately paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

Part of our mission at The National Navy UDT-SEAL Museum is to honor our fallen. It is this sacrifice on the shoulders of these men–and all veterans–that we stand upon. We are committed to preserving their legacy and to bring visibility to the sacrifices these warriors and their families have made to make possible the freedoms we all share.

This year’s event promises once again to challenge you physically and mentally. You will come to understand why “The Only Easy Day Was Yesterday” and quitting is never an option. In SEAL evolution style, you will not know what you will be challenged to do until the morning of your arrival. You will learn the value of a buddy and to adapt and overcome challenges to accomplish your mission in finishing the challenge. We can only tell you that there will be teams of two, so pick your buddy wisely.

The Memorial Wall Challenge is free of charge, but you must sign up and complete a consent form. Registration is limited to 50 teams of two. SEALs operate in Sea, Air and Land, so be prepared. Everyone who participates will receive a Memorial Wall Challenge t-shirt.

Like all SEAL evolutions, it pays to be a winner. Everyone else will be dealt with accordingly.

“DARE TO CHALLENGE. COMMIT TO HONOR.”

Hooyah!
