This book was intense. Like really intense. It's probably really naive of me but I had no idea who SEALS were, at least the extent of their job description and training. I also was oblivious to the fact that there were organized battles in the Middle East. I can't believe I never knew. Those men and women are amazing and are true heroes. The sacrifices Chris and all the other servicemen made and are still making is inspiring. This book struck a very deep chord with me. Chris had kids and a family and put the country ahead of them.
