This book is inspiring and really made me feel proud to be an American, and a U.S. Navy Sailor.
Adam’s story of triumph and patriotism is unmatched. I am so thankful that we have men and women that answer the call to protect our country. And few are as special as Adam Brown.
Considering Adam’s family, especially his wife and children, I want to say that they serve as well. I have spent a lot of time away from my wife and kids as a result of my service. Although, I’m never in harms way like a SEAL. But it’s easy to forget those who are left at home. This book helped show the importance of the family that a service member leaves at home. That was, surprisingly, one of my favorite things about this book - that it highlights the struggles of a mother and her children while daddy is away fighting for their freedom. It’s beautiful and tragic at the same time.
Adam’s faith renewed my own. I have been a Christian for many years, but my duties as a Sailor have consumed so much of me that I get off track. This book helped show me that a man can serve both the country and the Lord.
Today, I will kiss my wife a little longer. I will hug my kids a little tighter. And I will pray a little deeper. All because of one man who showed me, in his sacrifice, that I can play my role for America and be a family man that loves Jesus, at the same time.
Great book. Great man. I highly recommend anyone who loves America to read this.
