All were great students. I still remember his twin brother Morgan shooting me that steely eyed Texas glance as he said, "you going to take care of my brother when he comes through?", "of course", I said. I wasn't let down either.
I remember him being a bit hard headed at times, especially during the stealth and concealment phase. Most Texans I've met are like this in a good way, including our mutual friend Chris Kyle. Marcus was a great student and we became friends during the process, even though he got me quite drunk after graduation. My head still hurts thinking about it.
I'm still waiting for the hard copy of "Service" his wonderful wife Melanie is sending me. I couldn't wait, I'm impatient like that, and bought the eBook for my iPad. I'm a fast reader and don't normally read SEAL books but this was one I read in one sitting.
Marcus takes you through the rest of his career in the SEAL Teams and shares some excellent stories from Iraq that you would never hear about if his story was not told. Most importantly, he selflessly features other heroes and their stories.
All gave and some gave all since 9-11.
Marcus is a great story teller and you need to buy this book.
Looking forward to that joint signing soon Marcus. Great to see you and your family representing yourself and the SEAL Teams in an exemplary fashion as always.
"The Only Easy Day Was Yesterday"-US Navy SEALs.
Former US Navy SEAL, Editor-in-Chief of SOFREP and author of The Red Circle.
Service is a journey. The reader is deployed along with Luttrell and has a front row seat to his thoughts and actions. We’re introduced to members of his team and patrol Ramadi, all safely from our homes. What these men did to turn things around in the Al Anbar Province is extraordinary and deserves recognition.
Service also reveals pieces of the Operation Redwing puzzle that Luttrell discovered after Lone Survivor was written. The story of his rescue and rescuers. We learn what happened to Gulab after he risked his life to save the SEAL and where he is now. The bond between Marcus and Gulab is a testament to ancient traditions and the moral fiber of good men.
The wives of Navy SEALS are recognized through letters they’ve written about their husbands and what it’s like to be a part of the family that develops around the brotherhood. These women are amazing, strong and devoted. It takes a special breed of person to become a Navy SEAL and the women that love them are even more impressive.
Luttrell’s story began in Lone Survivor as he told of his journey to become a SEAL, his tragic mission in Afghanistan and returning home a changed man. Service picks up where that book left off and shows us what it’s like to achieve, accept and keep moving forward. A book well worth reading.
Life after service is a difficult transition and Marcus addresses this with acute clarity that really drives home what that transition encompasses.
He brings you with him after his survival from the hell on the mountain. You learn about the pivotal role US forces had in turning the tides of a city and way of thinking from that of hatred for our presence there to that of understanding and teamwork by the local citizens to free themselves from the terror and oppression by the enemy.
VERY well written and I feel honored that Marcus has chosen to share his experiences with everyone.
I recommend this book to anyone who has or is serving, has family in the Armed Forces and to every American.
