Fantastic Fresh Read! This was a great book. So much is learned about our Special Ops enduring so much to make it in. This case the Navy Seals. The author has many current people he discusses as well as starting with his Montana upbringing and family life that played a role in his becoming one of the best Navy Seals known. He doesn’t take that honor though, the Seal Teams are a family like no other! Sadly much could have been accomplished had our military forces hadn’t had their hands tied by the Barack Hussein administration!
