Publisher's Summary

The moment I was shot, I froze in disbelief. I wasn't sure what had just happened, I remember thinking, "Am I shot?" I didn't feel any pain, but the impact felt as if I was hit in the chest with a baseball bat. However, instantly, my worst fears were confirmed when I saw massive amounts of bright red blood flowing through my fingers and down my chest.

Attacked at Home: A Green Beret’s Survival Story of the Fort Hood Shooting is the amazing story about second Lt. John M. Arroyo, Jr., who, on April 2, 2014, was shot in the throat and neck by another soldier who then went on to kill four soldiers, including himself, and wound 16 others.

Attacked at Home is also about John’s life beginning with his childhood in Southern California, including his time spent as a tattooed member of a violent street gang, a hopeless teenage drug addict, and then his enlistment in the U.S. Army where he ultimately becomes a Special Forces Green Beret and highly decorated officer after serving two tours of duty in Afghanistan and one in Iraq. The audiobook also tells how he uses his Christian faith to protect himself and his fellow Special Forces “Operators” while deployed to the Middle East and then relies on it to recover from the massive wounds he sustained after being shot at Fort Hood, Texas

Critic Reviews

"John Arroyo is a paradox. He has every reason to be angry and filled with revenge, depression, and regret because of being attacked on Fort Hood. Yet, as his book unravels the details of an active shooter, you will see the unraveling of God’s amazing grace in the face of complete hopelessness." (Dave Roever, Minister, Motivational Speaker, Author, President of Roever Foundation.)

Redemptive Story

Captain Arroyo has pushed through difficulties to find hope and purpose in Christ. I met him when he and his wife came out to share their story to a group of troubled teenagers. He uses his story to show others that they can make it through whatever difficulty is in front of them and find hope in Jesus. He persevered through unimaginable tragedy and spends his time giving back to others, wanting them to know the love of God is what transforms a life.
