Funny thing: at first I did not like this book, finding Aaron Brown's drug addiction not that appealing. But I kept reading and after 50 pages could not put it down. Here is a man who battled his own demons for years, but yet managed to train himself to become a Navy SEAL which only around .01 percent of males could do. And yet he did it despite overcoming all manner of serious injuries: broken arms, legs, fingers, even losing an eye (an eye!) in a training accident and yet he managed to become a sniper despite these severe handicaps. And as anyone who has read either Chris Kyle or Brandon Webb, there is no more challenging calling in our armed forces that becoming a Navy SEAL sniper requiring not only unreal physical and mental stamina but also tremendous intellectual capacity as well. And Aaron Brown was one of those rare men-who also wore BatMan underwear into battle! How cool is that? He was also a devoted father to his children and a great husband to his wife, who is also one of the heroines of our time
He died doing what he most loved-saving his brother soldiers-and America is the luckier for having troopers such as Aaron Brown in their midst. Get this book and read it!
