No Easy Day & Fearless

On the heels of Veterans Day, I would like to recap a couple of books that I read over the past couple weeks. The first was No Easy Day which is an autobiography of Mark Owen who was an operator of the US Naval Special Warfare Development Group, otherwise known as SEAL Team Six.

No Easy Day will take you into a firsthand account of the men and mission that took out Osama Bin Laden. It will also take you to the streets of Iraq to the rescue of Captain Phillips in the Indian Ocean, from the mountaintops of Afghanistan to the third floor of Osama Bin Laden’s compound as well as countless other missions that never made headlines.

No Easy Day will give you an inside look at what it is to be a truly tactical warrior where no mission is impossible with the right team and plan.

Fearless was a story of Adam Brown, also a member of SEAL Team Six that gave the ultimate sacrifice for his men and country. Adam Brown never made it to the Osama Bin Laden raid, however, he was in the hearts and minds of all of his team that day.

Fearless takes you from the youth of Adam Brown through his rambunctious days as a kid and high school football player down to the depths of despair of battling his own inner demons to making a commitment to become the best – a U.S. Navy Seal.

Fearless has all the ingredients of a great story. Love, courage, inner personal battles to inner strength, compassion, determination, honor, commitment, triumphs, and sacrifice. This is a book that you will have a real hard time putting down. Emotional a read as it was, it was an absolutely enjoyable and inspiring read. If you like reading about the true Hero’s in life, this is one that you need to add to your list.
