There is something, even for vets, about reading about these men, its surreal. We can think back on times that were hard for us, but it is just nothing compared to what these men have done and continue to do. So for that-5 stars.

This is a mildly interesting look at what it takes to be a SEAL and then a sniper. The intensive training makes my Army basic training look like nursery school. The story also follows Wasdin on several missions, including the show-piece of the Battle of Mogadishu, which was covered in Black Hawk Down, in both book and film.
This memoir version looks like it was packaged as a YA, so I’m ...more

I think this is a tough subject to translate into a YA book, and I think the authors did a decent job of doing so.

Wasdin is a man to be admired for his service to this country. I'm glad ...more
