I enjoyed the review of different hero's within the book! Just points out we are all just human, and some rise to the "occasion". Only downside was the narrator - it just took me a little to get use to his voice....
Double chest thump, and peace sign for my fellow brothers and sisters in arms.
Chief Bob A-z
Pride, country, and unselfishness
I liked the depth of explanation from the author. I also like how he adds a lot of personal thoughts at the end. I enjoy seeing the personal side of the "quiet professional".
This book does not have the constant action like Lone Survivor, but it is definitely still
worth the read. I enjoyed it.
Marcus followed up and explained extra details from the first book.
Marcus because he is a great american.
I have always loved to read, and now I really enjoy listening to my books as well!!
I am an Army brat--and I enjoy anything patriotic. And this book swells with patriotism (sometimes subtly, sometimes quite openly). Marcus Luttrell touches briefly on his Lone Survivor experience to acquaint readers with his story, then continues on with his service beyond that. Different aspects of military service are profiled, all through stories of missions and camaraderie with service members of all ranks and branches. The narration was wonderful as well--it was not the author, however, the narrator sounded exactly how I imagined the author would sound--perfect match!! I would also highly recommend listening to Lone Survivor--Audible has recently released an unabridged version--that is an excellent book as well.
I want to feel good when I complete a story & am a little harsh on depressing ones. There are a few sad ones that I love but not many.
I found this book to be the best of the 3, I include American Sniper as a companion book to Luttrell's 2 novels. I enjoyed every minute of this story and it gave me an even greater understanding of the special warfare community. Thank you for your service. Excellent job.
I will listen to it many times! I am a patriot, and as such listening to the deeds that have been done by our nations finest warriors out of sheer patriotism swells my heart with pride! I only wish I would have tried, and I stress TRIED to join these patriots in their fight. Unlike them I will have to live with this regret. I will listen again and again to make sure I never forget those brave Warriors!
As of now I have none to compare with it.
I love Kevin T. Collins! He is a master of his craft! He pulls you into a book and makes you feel like you are there.
Patriots and Warriors, men who never quit, they keep us safe.
I would like to say thank you to Marcus Luttrell for sharing this story with us. There is so much crap in the news today that it is good to hear the reall story of what our brave men and women are out there doing for us! God Bless America and all of her Patriots!
The best way to read.
Marcus Lattrell's honesty, as well as the people and stories he shares. Much like "Lone Survivor", this book will open eyes, hearts and minds of people not familiar with the concept of "service" or what soldiers/sailors willingly give to our country out of a sense of intergrity and patriotism.
Haivng formerly lived in the Navy community, it is always interesting to hear someone genuinely communicate the lifestyle, unique people and camraderie that is the US military. Keeping with the theme of "service", he describes many different ways people serve and the respect/gratitude they deserve, but do not expect. His stories are entertaining, heartbreaking, funny, eye opening, and encouraging. People also need to know the truth behind the stories delivered by the press and political figures.
I liked his clear and consise delivery and the way he truly seems to "be" Marcus Lattrell, but did not like how some of the srory was made to be overly dramatic.
No. I don't think I could handle all of the content at once. It is a lot to take in and I liked to mull over what I listened to before moving on to the next section.
Readers should challenge themselves to listen to "Service" and "Lone Survivor" no matter what their ideals or political beleifs may be. There are aspects of service and war that some people may need to hear to gain the full perspective before forming opinions about issues regarding Iraq/Afghanastan. Many people are misinformed and might like to hear the story from the horses mouth, so to speak. Maybe more people will be motivated to find ways to help the young men and women returning from war.
In the top 5
It is real life at it's best
Don't think so
Thank You to all who serve in Uniform.

Yes, I am right now
Marcus, it's his story but Morgan is great also
A look at The Seals.....they don't talk about!
