Fewer than 1% of our population ever serve our Great Nation. There are far fewer percentage that ever make it to our elite Special Forces. Thank you for the glimpse into who these people are and for continuing to find and inspire new ways to serve your country.
I urge anyone who looks at these reviews to pick up this book and give it a read. Although the author couldn't possibly have enough pages/time to write about everyone he has served with, he has honored those he did write about.
The men and women of our military are not just a name on a page or a story in a headline. They are sons, daughters, husbands, wives, mothers, fathers, uncles, aunts. Most of all they are people brave enough to raise their right hand and sign a contract to protect all of us from both foreign and domestic enemies.
The numbers of killed in action or wounded in action can easily be found. However, those "numbers" each have a story of loss with them. They each have a story and a sacrifice. All those people willingly raised their hand and signed a contract that includes up to their life.
The family and friends that mourn their loss or are there to take care of those injured would benefit from this book. It shows who the people were and the lessons they taught along the way. It reminds it is of course ok to be sad of their death. At the same time be ok with it as they were doing what they loved and to protect as many as they can.
Part of the Army's Soldier's Creed is "I am a guardian of freedom and the American way of life." Every branch of our Military has a similar version. Be grateful of the Sheep Dog's that protect us from the evils of the world. Whether it is our Military, Law Enforcement and the Security contractors that are often previously trained Military service members.
Bottom line = great book. Couldn't help but write a great review.
