Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Some get it, many don't."

    This second book by Marcus Luttrell is excellent. It covers all the bases of emotion in a well written way that allows you to connect with him in a small way. Military members are a special breed. The book was humbling to day the least. The things that our service members go through for our country is amazing and no words can ever show them the gratitude they deserve.

    "Marcus Littrell is an American hero"

    Kevin T. Collins gives as much justice as possible to this story as possible without being there. This story and men like Marcus gives great pride and put priorities in perspective. Give this story a try and you won't be dissatisfied.

    "GREAT BOOK FOR SURE"

    Highly recommend this book as a follow up to lone survivor. This is the type of book once you start you don't wanna stop. Truly shows what selflessness these SEALS stand for. Thank you Marcus for the books and your service!!!

    Would you listen to Service again? Why?

    Yes, I could listen to it 3 times and would still enjoy it each time.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Marcuse Lattrell, what he has accomplished over the years with buds, sniper school and all the missions that he participated in. He is a true hero!

    Story
    "Better than alone Survivor"

    True tale of American service and honor. Better than lone survivor in so many ways. It goes into the family side of service and how much these men and women give to serve.

    God Bless people like Marcus and Morgan. Hooyah

    "Good book."

    I like the information in this book and it is always good to hear about these activities from the people that were there. Marcus is a hero that sacrificed so much for our country and our freedoms. Thank you, sir.
    Only 'adjustment' I would suggest is to have someone else tell the story. I found the narrator to be trying too hard to have a Lutheran accent and at times tried to force emotion.
