WOW!! I read this incredible book in one day and couldn't put it down. The United States is so lucky to have these special Servicemen volunteer for the infantry and the bravery and risks Dakota Meyer displayed to save his team and many many Afghani soldiers is amazing. Highly recommended.
Freedom isn't free!!
