Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10 Lone Survivor question

After reading is anyone interested in joining the military?

Just a general question. I read this book, and felt so proud about the men and women who serve our country that my goal is to serve our country as a part of our Armed Forces. Does anyone feel the same way? Or has the book turned you away from the military?

I totally want to leap out of a plane, climb up the side of a mountain range, and then gun down hundreds of terrorists...but I'm a female over 40 and they won't train me. Wish I had read these kind of books earlier in my life. Maybe I would've done something exciting and meaningful. If you join, let me know. I'll pray for you and send you a care package.

Not my type of book typically, but a great friend of mine told me he loved it (he's in the military) and I thought.. why not... And I really did love it, and I have a new appreciation for the men and women who serve.

If you choose to do it, good luck to you :)

I know it's been a while since this thread was active, but if you enjoyed and were inspired by Lone Survivor, i'd love to recommend Operation Red Wings: The Untold Story Behind Lone Survivor

It's written by Peter Nealen, a former Reconnaissance Marine and veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan. A guy who made the decision to join the military and serve his country admirably
