Decorated Navy SEAL Lieutenant Jason Redman served his country courageously and with distinction in Colombia, Peru, Afghanistan, and Iraq, where he commanded mobility and assault forces. But his journey was not without its supreme challenges. He was critically wounded in 2007 when he was struck by machine-gun fire at point blank range. During his intense recovery period, Redman posted a sign on his door, warning all who entered not to "feel sorry for [his] wounds."

Would you consider the audio edition of Trident to be better than the print version?

Yes, the reader brought the story to life. It was mesmoriing and I listened straight through in a few sittings.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jason Redman of course.

What about Erik Bergmann’s performance did you like?

His voice showed respect and honor to the life and victories of Jason Redman. The emotions and voice changes paint the picture perfectly.

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

I too have spent months in hospitals and when Jason first saw his children after being shot it was very emotional.

Any additional comments?

This was my first ever audible book, and although I doubt future books will be as good as TheTrident, the "listening" was great.
