“Lone Survivor” by Marcus Luttrell

I was given a book recently on the experiences of Marcus Lutrell of the US Navy, specifically, the Seal Team member of the US Navy.  He was wounded in Afghanistan and lost friends and comrades who fought to save him and accomplish their mission.  This was an excellent book which details what training the Seals undergo and the sheer will and determination it takes to become one of the most elite fighting groups in the world.  If you have ever know someone who has been through this training, you will better understand them as a person.  bw

  1. My friend had mentioned of this book you speak of, and was actually raving about it for weeks. I should grab a copy, he said its a great read. Do you know if this is available in ebooks?

  2. I had given the same book to my best friend. He is deployed in Iraq and I know that he would somewhat relate to Marcus Lutrell’s story. This is a great book, two thumbs up!

  3. I have just finished the book and it made me miss my son more. He is in the army as well, currently deployed somewhere in Japan. I always pray for his safety along with all the young men and women in the military too. I wish they can go home safe soon.
