Transgender former Navy Seal tells her story in new memoir

Christopher Beck served as a U.S. Navy SEAL in some of the most dangerous battlegrounds in the world, including Iraq and Afghanistan and earned medals and commendations including the Bronze Star and a Purple Heart

But for 20 years while Beck was fighting for his country, he was also fighting an inner battle over his identity. He wanted to live his life as a woman.

After retiring in 2011, Beck did just that. Chris Beck is now Kristin Beck.

Kristin has written a book, Warrior Princess, about her journey as a US Navy Seal and the process of living life in the light today.

Last night, Kristin spoke with Anderson Cooper about the transition from being a masculine Navy SEAL to a feminine woman.
