August 16, 2022 – Miami, Florida
Former Navy SEAL operative and author Willard Chesney, the dog handler on the historic raid on the Osama Bin Laden compound, along with Justin Melnick, who plays Navy SEAL dog handler ‘Brock Reynolds’ on the CBS hit TV series ‘Seal Team’, are teaming up to release an exclusive NFT collection using the ReserveBlock RBX Network protocol with a portion of the proceeds benefiting ‘The Boot Campaign’.
This exclusive NFT series will each come with special unique digital and physical memories, as well as digitally paired with personal experiences with both Chesney and Melnick and will be offered directly from their digital wallets to all who wish to participate.
Chesney served as SEAL team operator and handler for Military Working Dog (MWD) Cairo, the only dog on the team to conduct Operation Neptune Spear. This infamous operation resulted in the elimination of Osama Bin Laden and ended an eight-year campaign to capture or terminate the known terrorist.
Chesney, who served as both an assaulter and dog handler with NSW DEVGRU (SEAL team six) is also a recipient of the Silver Star and Purple Heartas well as the author of the best-selling book ‘No Ordinary Dog’, published through St. Martin’s Press.
While this poignant and emotional memoir details Chesney’s working relationship with Cairo through multiple deployments, it also recalls how Cairo saved Chesney’s life in more ways than one. Chesney now works to help veterans who have suffered from traumatic brain injury.
“I always knew I wanted to serve, and serving in the SEAL teams was my life’s goal. I never dreamed that I would be lucky enough to become a dog handler in the teams. My dog Kairo was a special animal with a special soulhe was truly a part of our team just like any other operator.
“Being able to continue to tell his story in a variety of ways and help others is the best way I know how to honor his life. While NFTs are new to me, it clearly provides a platform for me to do just thathelp others and continue Cairo’s legacy.”
Joining Chesney is CBS SEAL Team actor Justin Melnick, who also served his community as a police officer before his career in television. On the show, Justin plays the role of “Brock”, the team’s dog handler, along with his Belgian Malinois named Dita.
Melnick has spent many of the past few years contributing time and personal resources to several veterans’ causes and has also worked closely with Chesney on various training exercises with their Malinois.
“Playing Brock on ‘SEAL Team’ has given me an even deeper perspective on our incredible heroes. My admiration for what they do is beyond measure. They have given so much to this country and I am proud to play one of these heroes on TV.
“I couldn’t be more excited to launch this NFT series with Will, and look forward to connecting with like-minded people who also want to show their support for our heroes.”
Launch details on this exclusive NFT hero series will come in September along with the series release date.
