The Iraqi Warrior, Code Name: Johnny Walker

His Code Name Was “Johnny Walker.”

Code Name: Johnny Walker embodies everything that the Warrior Mindset Podcast was built upon. Johnny Walker was the Navy SEALs’ most trusted translator. A man who is credited with saving countless American lives and has become a legend in the special-ops community. Co-host Brad Nagel and Johnny worked together many times. This episode we hear how Brad was with Johnny on Johnny’s first operation together. From then on, Johnny was on a path that was worth writing a book on. The Co-Author of the film American Sniper, Jim DeFelice, co-wrote Johnny’s memoir titled “Code Name: Johnny Walker.”  A film is currently being directed by the Director of the cinematic hit “Straight of Out Compton” Alan Wenkus.

Johnny and Brad clearly have a bond that can never be understood unless you were with them in the theater of war. It’s a bond that they call brotherhood, but I think it’s more than that, there just isn’t a better word for it. It makes me wonder what types of things we miss out on as human beings when two guys wish they were back in war together. Johnnys book tells those stories from a man with what seems like the most unlikely chances to become what he is today. It’s an example that no matter what odds you face, overcome the adversity, love your friends and family, and be hell on earth for the people who want to take that away from you.
