Interview for Ex-Navy Seal's Powerful Book
With the publication of his book, Battle on the Home Front, author and former Navy SEAL Carl Higbie has written a dramatic, in-your-face, no-holds-barred exposé of America's social, political, and military culture, and the dangers the country is facing from threats foreign and domestic. In his appearances and book-signings around the country, including two recent interviews on Fox News, Carl Higbie is saying what many Americans would like to say but are too afraid to say.

He has been a frequent guest and commentator on the FOX News Network, and in August 2017 he was appointed as Chief of External Affairs for the Corporation for National and Community Service in the Trump administration..
