    What made the experience of listening to Damn Few the most enjoyable?

    I enjoy hearing about the events in life that made men like Denver choose this way of life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Damn Few?

    Hearing some of the stories from his life that moved him in the direction he chose.


    What does Rorke Denver bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Hearing him tell his own story made me feel as if i were talking with him and he was sharing the stories of his life with me.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I am not embarrassed to say that these true life stories effect me deeply and i often cry when hearing some of the things these brave men endure.


    Any additional comments?

    This is not a book that is divulging any SEAL secrets, this is a book that shares the life story of a man who has been and has forged the elite warriors of our Armed Forces.

    From the streets of Iraq to the mountaintops of Afghanistan and to the third floor of Osama Bin Laden's compound, operator Mark Owen of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group - commonly known as SEAL Team Six - has been a part of some of the most memorable special operations in history, as well as countless missions that never made headlines. No Easy Day puts listeners alongside Owen and the other handpicked members of the 24-man team as they train for the biggest mission of their lives.

    Would you listen to No Easy Day again? Why?

    Absolutely, It is refreshing to hear the first hand accounts of true pariots doing what needs to be done to protect and preserve our way of life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of No Easy Day?

    The description of the raid on Bin Ladens compound


    Have you listened to any of Holter Graham’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I will search him out now.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Real results from real patriots.


    Any additional comments?

    I would just like to extend thanks to the brave man who wrote this book even with the threat of his own government punishing him. I understand there needs to be a certain level of secrecy here but to honor the work of the people who are nearly never honored by the general public is a great thing. I know they are silent warriors not looking for praise or medals, but lets be honest here. If someone puts their life on the line almost daily, there needs to be some sort of recognition even though they dont ask for it. To sum it up, THANKS!

    Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell returned from his star-crossed mission in Afghanistan with his bones shattered and his heart broken. So many had given their lives to save him-and he would have readily done the same for them. As he recuperated, he wondered why he and others, from America's founding to today, had been willing to sacrifice everything-including themselves-for the sake of family, nation, and freedom.

    Would you listen to Service again? Why?

    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!


    What other book might you compare Service to and why?

    As of now I have none to compare with it.


    Have you listened to any of Kevin T. Collins’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    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.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Patriots and Warriors, men who never quit, they keep us safe.


    Any additional comments?

    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!
