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 consider the audio edition of Service to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version. The Audio version was very good, Kevin T. Collins could have done a better job familiarizing himself with some of the terms and words prior to reading it aloud. It was obvious at times that he had no military or tactical experience by the way he pronounced certain words. I wouldn't let that deter me from listening to the audio version though.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Too many to list!

What about Kevin T. Collins’s performance did you like?

Overall he did a good job, as I said earlier Kevin T. Collins could have done a better job familiarizing himself with some of the terms and words prior to reading it aloud. It was obvious at times that he had no military or tactical experience by the way he pronounced certain words.

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

All of it, but particulalry the portion of the story about Operation Anaconda in 2002. It had a special place in my heart because my flight crew and I, had the honor of carrying back 8 of the hero's that were killed on that mountain.

Any additional comments?

Excellent book! Excellent Author! I'm glad Marcus took the time to share his experiences.
