Publisher's Summary

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.

In Service, we follow Marcus Luttrell to Iraq, where he returns to the battlefield as a member of SEAL Team 5 to help take on the most dangerous city in the world: Ramadi, the capital of war-torn Al Anbar Province. There, in six months of high-intensity urban combat, he would be part of what has been called the greatest victory in the history of U.S. Special Operations forces. We also return to Afghanistan and Operation Redwing, where Luttrell offers powerful new details about his miraculous rescue. Throughout, he reflects on what it really means to take on a higher calling, about the men he's seen lose their lives for their country, and the legacy of those who came and bled before.

A thrilling war story, Service is also a profoundly moving tribute to the warrior brotherhood, to the belief that nobody goes it alone, and no one will be left behind.

    "Good book."

    I like the information in this book and it is always good to hear about these activities from the people that were there. Marcus is a hero that sacrificed so much for our country and our freedoms. Thank you, sir.
    Only 'adjustment' I would suggest is to have someone else tell the story. I found the narrator to be trying too hard to have a Lutheran accent and at times tried to force emotion.

    Story
    "Great follow up to Lone Survivor"
    What made the experience of listening to Service the most enjoyable?

    Following up with more information about the Lone Survivor book.


    What other book might you compare Service to and why?

    I have listened to several of the NAvy Seal books all have points that are great so for me there isn't one single book to compare.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the character Gularb came to the U.S. to visit. Also what the Seal team members are willing to do for their brothers without question.


    Any additional comments?

    I suggest reading/ listening to Lone Survivor first. There are many refrences to it is this book. it was good to hear about what many of the other branches of service do as well. It also sheds a little light on what the wives and childeren of the soldiers give up. Considering the amount of time the Seals dedicate to training and actual operations.

    "Awesome book"

    I enjoyed listening to Marcus's story, he has been incredibly blessed. As a Navy veteran and having the honor and privilege of working with Navy SEALS, in the 90's it was interesting to see that side of the Navy, as it is not common place to hear much about the teams in the fleet. I recommend this book to anyone that wants to hear a great story and it was a honor to hear, it brought tears to my eyes on more than one occasion and made my heart swell with pride that we have men that are willing and more than capable to do that job. Fair winds and following sea's to all that have gone down range and made the ultimate sacrifice.

    "Great book"

    If you had the chance to listen to Lone Survivor the first book this one gives even more details to operation Red Wing and other operations. A must read.

    "Kept my interest through its entirety."

    For me this was well-written, well read, and well thought out. Thank you to everyone who helped put this together. It was great hearing some of the back stories. I am from Houston and several of my friends also knew JT, Marcus, Morgan, from their days at Sam so they are like friends of friends to me.
