August 3, 2016 –Pensacola, Fl—Former Navy SEAL Kevin Lacz will be featured at the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation’s Discovery Saturday series for an author presentation and book signing at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 20, in the Blue Angels Atrium of the National Naval Aviation Museum.
“The Last Punisher: A SEAL Team THREE Sniper’s True Account of the Battle of Ramadi” by Kevin Lacz is a gripping and intimate on-the-ground memoir from a Navy SEAL who was part of SEAL Team 3 with American Sniper Chris Kyle.
A bold, no-holds-barred first-person account of the Iraq War, with wry humor and moving testimony, Kevin Lacz tells the story of his tour in Iraq with SEAL Team 3, the warrior elite of the Navy. This legendary unit, known as “The Punishers,” included Chris Kyle (American Sniper), Mike Monsoor, Ryan Job, and Marc Lee. These brave men were instrumental in securing the key locations in the pivotal 2006 Battle of Ramadi, told with stunning detail in these pages.
Discovery Saturday attendees will experience firsthand his deployment — from his first mission, to his first kill, to his eventual successful return to the United States. “The Last Punisher” brings the reader into the life and mind of a SEAL, demonstrating the tough realities of war. At the same time, Lacz shares how these experiences made him a better man and how proud he is of his contributions to one of this country’s most difficult military campaigns.
“The Last Punisher” will be available for purchase in the Flight Deck Store on Friday, Aug. 19. A book signing will be held immediately after the Discovery Saturday presentation in the Blue Angels Atrium. For more information on Lacz or “The Last Punisher,” please visit http://www.kevinlacz.com/.
