Don Shipley retired after 24-years as a SEAL Senior Chief in 2003. He served at SEAL Team ONE, SEAL Team TWO, the Naval Special Warfare Center (BUD/S) and Naval Special Warfare Group TWO, in Little Creek Virginia as a SEAL Advanced Training Instructor.
When not in a SEAL Platoon or deployed overseas, his time was spent running blocks of training for SEALs in air operations, land warfare, and demolitions.
As a SEAL, he preferred the challenge of Mountain and Arctic Warfare but began his career in the equally hostile desert environment, spending much of his time in the worlds hottest and coldest climates.
He conducted numerous operations in Bosnia and Liberia, Africa while at SEAL Team TWO and became the first Non-Corpsman SEAL to graduate Paramedic School.
Setting records for immense water and land demolition shots and running High Risk training courses, he also served as an Explosive Expert instructing Police Departments across the country in Booby Traps and Improvised Explosive Devices.
After retirement he became a Blackwater Security Contractor, spending a year in Pakistan and Afghanistan fighting the war on terror. He resides in Chesapeake Virginia with his wife and daughter. His Son has been a Navy SEAL for 9 years. He attended SEAL Training at 17 years old, becoming one of the youngest men to ever graduate BUD/S.
