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.

Marcus is a great story teller and gives credit where credit is due. This has you laughing and crying. I am inspired to serve others in my daily civilian life after this book. Great read!
I just listened to Service for the 2nd time. I really like the stories which Marcus highlights and didn't feel that this book was Lone Surviver 2.0. Service is a fantastic book for anyone who enjoys non-fiction military.
Thanks to Marcus for getting this out there. It would be helpful to have someone other than Keven T. Collins narrate in my opinion. I found his southern accent to be forced and sometimes it took me out of the story thinking about it instead of being totally captivated. But hey, I don't have the time to read it myself so I can't complain too much.
loved all of it! Marcus is a great writer who makes you fwel like you are part of the story and you can't help but feel for these heros.
I am proud of these great men and their incredible wives who support them so they can fight for all of us.
I look forward to your next book Marcus and wiah I was 23 again to take a shot at becoming a Seal.
This book over exceeded my expectations and the narrator did a wonderful job. I highly recommend anyone that enjoys story's about outstanding individuals that are also Navy Seals to read this book. GOD Bless our Military.
Yes, this book really finishes explaining the story of Lone Survivor.
Several, but I will narrow to 2. Learning about the effort put toward the rescue of Marcus and the other was the chapter with the wives.
it showed how people can come together to show their support for one another when things get tough.was in the military and was a military wife as well. liked both of Marcus's books. will he writing any more books in the future?🇺🇸 ⚓
I must admit I had tears a few time while listening to the book. Some stories were very touching. The navy seals are definitely amongst the finest men.
I would've liked more details about operation Red Wings.
