Dan De Luce of Agence France-Presse reports via InterAksyon.com that "a decorated former US Navy SEAL is now living life as a woman after undergoing hormone therapy and has revealed her transgender identity in a new memoir titled 'Warrior Princess.'"
According to the report, Kristin Beck wrote in the eBook published on Saturday that she "struggled with her gender identity" during her two-decade military career, which included "13 deployments around the world." Beck, who used to be called Chris, said her retirement in 2011 "came as a relief" because it paved the way for her to live openly as a woman.
"The book went on sale Saturday on Amazon.com and has the subtitle, 'A US Navy SEAL’s Journey to Coming out Transgender,' with a cover photo of Beck looking like the quintessential SEAL warrior in the field, complete with bushy beard, dark sunglasses and a camouflage uniform," the report said.
