Charlie Melton

“I’ve been taught by, trained, and worked with some of the top military and law enforcement snipers in the world.”

Born and raised in Macon, Georgia, Charlie joined the U.S. Navy at the age of 19. He completed the Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL course Class 176 and checked into his very first SEAL Team, (SEAL Delivery Vehicle Team-2) where he underwent 3 deployments, and eventually served as a SEAL Delivery Vehicle Instructor.

Eventually, he became the Leading Chief Petty Officer of Sniper School. He went on two deployments as part of SEAL Team-5, and ultimately received the Bronze Star, Purple Heart, Sailor of the Quarter, Sailor of the Year for all SEAL Teams, and Runner-Up for PACIFIC-FLEET SOY.

Charlie served as the Operations Leading Chief Petty Officer of the Naval Special Warfare Unit-1 and was in charge of 14 Southeast Asian Countries. Later, he served as SEAL Team-1 Troop Chief and retired as Senior Chief Petty Officer in 2015. Since his retirement, he opened CharlieMikePrecision, a Tactical Force Company specializing in Long Range Rifle, Pistol, and Carbine Courses. Engineering the most accurate rifles available on the market.


As a former Navy SEAL I have witnessed and learned a lot about the post-war effect on families and friends. I have also had the honor and privilege to work with several organizations providing demonstrations and raising awareness for these same Veterans. Now it's my turn to give back through Frog Dog K9 (a 501(c)(3)). My K9, Storm, has had an incredible impact on my life. I have had several dogs as pets, but never had I achieved the bond that I have with Storm, a female Belgian Malinois. She is forever bringing into focus my understanding and a different way of seeing the world around me. These are very special animals; bred, reared, and trained in a tradition forgotten by most. My thinking was if a K9 can have this much impact on me, I needed to share this experience with others. I never considered having a trained K9 as a companion and I certainly did not understand how beneficial one could be for me and my family. They can provide home protection, retrieve prosthetic limbs, assist in mobility, detect depression and seizures, rebuild trust issues, help with situational awareness, rebuild social interaction and communication breakdowns, and simply bring peace and happiness at times when it is most needed.


Our mission is to provide an environment where damaged warriors can interact with dogs. At the Frog Dog K9 compound we have created a setting where veterans can come and do what they are comfortable doing; i.e. navigating obstacles, shooting, rappelling, fishing, swimming, and spending time with dogs. I quickly realized how bringing guys out here was helping them re-adjust. Now I am working on creating an opportunity to help these veterans heal and navigate the physical aspects of day-to-day living with or without a K9. I believe we are having an impact.
