Forging a Navy SEAL, One Blade of Grass at a Time

At age 10 and 11, many children are still focused on where to get their next Poekemon Go prize, video games and how to avoid cleaning up their rooms.

Not so with 11-year-old Frank Giaccio.

While Frank (who prefers the nickname “FX,” and recently turned 11) may also spend time trading Pokemon cards and wearing out his XBox or PS3 controllers, his main focus is on the future: He wants to be a US Navy SEAL, and is doing everything he can now to build a foundation for himself to ensure he reaches that goal.

One of those steps Frank has taken is to become a young entrepreneur through his self-started lawn mowing business.

Normally he charges $8, but, to show his dedication, Frank offered to mow the sizeable White House lawn for free:

Dear Mr. President:

It would be my honor to mow the White House lawn some weekend for you. Even though I’m only ten, I would like to show the nation what young people like me are ready for. I admire your business background and have started my own business. I have been mowing my neighbors’ lawns for some time. Please see the attached flier. Here’s a list of what I have and you are free to pick whatever you want: power mower, push mower, and weed whacker. I can bring extra fuel for the power mower and charged batteries for the weed whacker. I will do this at no charge.

Sincerely, Frank

President Trump came out to praise the boy, giving him a high-five and later saying Frank is “the future of our country.” Frank and his father, also shown above, were given a tour of the Oval Office.

With an attitude like Frank’s, we’re pretty sure here at SEALGrinderPT that Frank will meet his goal with flying colors! HOOYAH!
