Publisher's Summary

Chief Warrant Officer Gary O'Neal is no ordinary soldier. For nearly 40 years, he has fought America's enemies, becoming one of the greatest Warriors this nation has ever known. Part Native American, O'Neal was trained in both military combat and the ways of his Native people, combining his commitment to freedom with his respect for the enemy, his technical fighting skills with his fierce warrior spirit.

From his first tour in Vietnam at 17 to fighting in both Gulf Wars, O'Neal was nothing less than a super-soldier. A minefield of aggression bordering on a justice-seeking vigilante, O'Neal kept fighting even when wounded, refusing to surrender in the face of nine serious injuries and being left more than once. O'Neal earned countless military honors as a member of the elite Army Rangers corps, a founding member of the legendary first Department of Defense antiterrorist team, a member of the Golden Knights Parachuting Team, and more, devoting his life to training the next generation of soldiers. His unbelievable true stories are both shocking and moving, a reminder of what it means to be a true American hero.

American Warrior will serve as inspiration for American men and women in uniform today, as well as appeal to the countless veterans who served their country alongside O'Neal.

Absolute American hero!

Gary is a total badass. As a former Ranger, we heard stories of the revered Gary O’Neal for years and finally after hearing his story, I completely understand how he feels about the world. He left the life of things we only see in movies, but he actually did it in real life. This book is a must listen/read. Also David does an incredible job performing while reading this unreal story

Deeply Spiritual

If you love war stories and movies you will love this book. It is about one soldiers life. enlisted at 15 under a false name and went to Vietnam and knew he was at home. I could not stop listening to this.
