Editorial Reviews


“There are few, if any, people in the world who knew Chris Kyle as well as Kevin "Dauber" Lacz. Many, like myself, knew some of Chris’s story; few, like Kevin, knew virtually all of it. 

This book is about the amazing true grit of SEAL Team THREE in some of the worst days of battle in the history of the US SEAL Teams and the United States. The epitome of the SEAL attitude of “never quit” runs through Kevin’s veins and this book’s pages. A must read.” (Scott McEwen, #1 New York Times bestselling co-author of American Sniper and the nationally bestselling Sniper Elite series of novels )

“One of the very best books to come out of the war in Iraq. A natural sequel to American Sniper and a powerful, rapid-fire look into the world of an operator. An instant classic that will be of enormous value to future warriors, scholars, and anyone who cares about our military and our veterans.” (Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, bestselling author of On Killing )

"The Last Punisher takes you right onto the battlefield and into the heart of the action. A rare glimpse into the mind of a Navy SEAL—you won't be able to put it down." (Clint Emerson, New York Times bestselling author of 100 Deadly Skills )

"Superb action-writing. The finest story of a SEAL team in combat: alternately violent, thoughtful, funny and raw. Always compelling, page after page. Bravo Zulu!" (Bing West, New York Times bestselling author of No True Glory: The Battle for Fallujah )

“Kevin Lacz is an honest-to-God American hero. Serving with the elite Navy Seals, Kevin faced bullets and bombs to stop terrorists from coming toward us. In The Last Punisher, Kevin tells his story in a compelling and earthy way that brings the challenges of the soldier to every page. You might already love America, but you’ll love it more after reading this book." (Mike Huckabee, 44th governor of Arkansas and #1 bestselling author of God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy )

"The Last Punisher is both frightening and exhilarating. It puts you right in the middle of the action, as if you're next to Kevin during the events he describes. His account provides a deeper understanding of the service of our most heroic elite fighters." (Willie Robertson, New York Times bestselling author of The Duck Commander Family )

"The Last Punisher by Kevin Lacz will impact the generations living through the troubles in the Middle East in much the same way All Quiet On The Western Front did those living in the aftermath of World War I. This is an important book. Vivid in detail, cranked with action, and fueled by a love for his family, his country, and his fellow man." (Andy Andrews, New York Times bestselling author of The Traveler’s Gift and The Noticer )

"A remarkable tribute to the power of teamwork and a rare honest glimpse into a brotherhood where the stakes are life and death. The Last Punisher gives the reader an essential new understanding of what our American service members have endured during the War on Terror." (John Rocker, retired Major League Baseball pitcher and director of public affairs for Save Homeless Veterans )

Kevin was born and raised in central Connecticut before enrolling in James Madison University in 2000. When the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 claimed the life of a good friend's father, he decided to leave school in favor of military service. While visiting a Navy recruiter's office, a SEALs poster caught Kevin's eye and he decided to enlist in the Navy with the intention of going to BUD/S and becoming a SEAL. He started BUD/S in early 2003 with Class 245. A back injury meant he would graduate with Class 246 at the end of the year. Because he was a Hospital Corpsman, Kevin also attended 18D Special Operations Combat Medic School at Fort Bragg before checking into SEAL Team THREE in Coronado, California.

Kevin did two platoons at SEAL Team THREE (Charlie and Delta) as a platoon sniper, breacher, and combat medic, each with a deployment to Iraq (2006 and 2008). He was fortunate enough to work alongside many of the toughest frogmen to ever wear the trident, such as Marc Lee, Ryan Job, Mikey Monsoor, and Chris Kyle. His platoon's 2006 deployment to Ramadi, then the most dangerous city in Iraq, has been discussed in several books, including Chris Kyle's American Sniper. Kevin's presence in Sniper led to his involvement in the production of and eventual casting in the Clint Eastwood directed Chris Kyle biopic by the same name (starring Bradley Cooper).

Upon completing his enlistment, Kevin was honorably discharged from the Navy. He was awarded a number of commendations for his service, including a Bronze Star with a combat 'V'. He returned to Connecticut and enrolled at UConn with the intention of continuing his career in medicine. He graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Political Science in 2011 and began the application process for Physician Assistant School. While earning his undergraduate degree, he also got married and started a family.

In 2012 Kevin moved his family to Winston-Salem, North Carolina in order to pursue his Masters of Health Sciences at Wake Forest University. He graduated in August 2014.

Currently, Kevin works as a Physician Assistant with Regenesis, LLC in Pensacola. He enjoys using his past experiences to facilitate his work in medicine and charity. His past military service influences him greatly as he seeks to actively support service members and veterans in his community.

Kevin lives in Florida with his wife, Lindsey, and two children.

A first hand account of life as a frontline sniper in a US Navy SEAL unit.
The harsh reality of SEAL training to life in a war zone.
From taking an enemy life, to seeing a brother in arms die. The reality of modern warfare, seen through the eyes of one of the elite fighting forces. A gripping read.
