"I don't like to $%^&# read but I like this book" 21 Oct. 2013
By TallBlondeTeacher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My students don't always speak in a correct manner (I'm working on that in the classroom) but they are brutally honest with me. A few weeks ago, I came across this book while looking for something that would appeal to male students (all former dropouts) in an alternative school setting. The book has not only grabbed and held the attention of these students but many more are asking for a copy to read. One student told me he hasn't read or touched a book in 4 years but enjoyed reading about Howard's life. Many have expressed how they could relate to his earlier experiences while growing up which makes it extra special to them. In addition, I located a study guide that goes with this book that enhances the learning for these young men. Though I haven't haven't read this book from cover to cover (I'm writing my own book) the students told me to give it 5 stars!

Special Ops. Warrior Foundation info. found in the back of book. 14 July 2014
By J. Lavoie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Thank you Dr. Wasdin, for writing such an important autobiography.
After all, there are only a few hundred people who hold positions as this country's best special operations soldiers, for whom their military can always count on for brave, impossible assignments. Special Operations soldiers are rarely seen and until recent years, rarely heard of.

You wrote one of the best described books on how it is to make it...as a Special Op's. warrior... by living it.
I am very proud, and feel safer to be on American soil after reading all that you and your brothers are willing to strive for, in the name of our county. So am I grateful for your opening up as candidly as you could, with your life in this genre. I agree too, that the way you were raised, physiologically enhanced your character when you needed to strive most--in SEAL training, in the Special Forces, and in your life once leaving the field.

It was interesting to find that your team works with other USA Special Ops., like Delta Force, Rangers and especially those greatly over looked, yet much needed
'pilots' in the skies! They showed themselves as heroic by working as flying, moving, living targets in the course to free our guys on the ground from a locked-in situation during one of your missions. Those pilots were incredible!

I have seen BUDS on the Military Channel, and recognized different faces of fear, exhaustion and failure. I wish I had seen yours along with the few making it to the end with you graduating--only to train for the rest of your careers and specialize in a particular field as a Special Forces soldier of which ever division.

I conclude that your mission in Mogadishu was compromised by communications delay in it's timing, as it was passed on seconds too late from each operator being told what to do and pass on. And unfortunately no one knew of this soon enough.
(Those interested in Mogadishu will find it interesting in the role that the U.N. took
being there too.)
Then due to the unexpected, drugged-up Somali non-military groups with weapons, yes, those 'extra' bad guys, were not what you were there for in your mission. If they had been your mission, your special military equipment and weapons would have been fully enhanced and available to you in fighting urban warfare.
Their violent response to your entrance is also a true-to-form testament reveling that your mission was not to fight them. Your original mission was planned to take less than an hour when devised, thus making this hostile environment of humans on drugs while carrying lethal weapons, an impossible task for your mix of guys as you were all taken by surprise.

I know that your future book readers will gasp when they read your personal turning point as you exit the area, as well as Somalia, as that situation became it's own story changer for you.

I recommend this book to everyone due to the subject matter, while discovering more about the person whom you can become...a self-assured person once you find your drive and apply it to your own interest(s). Besides this memoir, that is also what I got from this book. And I'm thankful Dr. Wasdin told his story in the way that he did...executed brilliantly!

Excellent 30 April 2012
By David Colbert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
What another reviewer said is incorrect. It's not written "down." It's shorter and condensed, but has the full story and all of the impact of the original version, a deserved bestseller. Mr. Wasdin's story is fascinating. Highly recommended.
(For some reason there's no "Verified Purchase" label, but it was.)
good book 13 Jan. 2015
By robbie wharton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am a SEAL Team Six Warrior written by Howard E. Easton and Stephen Templin is overall a very good book. The book is a biography about Howard Wasdin's life starting at a young age to becoming a SEAL Team Six warrior, the elite of the elite and the most skilled group of soldiers in America. Wasdin throughout the story overcame obsticals in his childhood and through out the rest of his life that most people will never have to endure. During his child hood, Wasdind felt with an abusive step father that never showed him the love that most fathers and sons share with one another. Wasdin didn't know it at the time but this unfortunate childhood built him up to become a determined, strong, and perisistant human being to complete and over come any goal or obsticals put in his way. This attitude towards his life really helped and assisted Wasdin to become a Navy SEAL. One of the many steps to become a Navy SEAL is Hell Week. The name isn't surger coated, except the complete opposite, its hell. Anybody who wants to complete it needs the highest amount of perserverence and determination. Wasdin, from his challenging childhood, realized that pain is only temporary and the accomplishment of completing a goal completely out weighs the pain and suffering one must go through when completing a goal. Wasdins goal was to become a Navy SEAL and going through hell was worth the pain of becoming one of the most elite soldiers America has to offer. The rest of the book tells Wasdin's life as a SEAL Team Six warrior. It tells stories that many people cannot rap their heasd around. Readers are left mind boggled and a state of disbelief of what soldiers and especially the most skilled and elite of the soldiers endure and accomplish to keep America safe and free. I am a SEAL Team Six Warrior is a highly regarded book that not only tells the story of Howard Wasdin but inner meanings such as what is needed to complete goals and get rewarded in life.
Another fantastic book from another U.S. NAVY SEAL. This is an excellent memoir from a true SEAL Warrior. 29 Mar. 2013
By Joseph J. Truncale - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been fortunate to have read a reviewed numerous books about SEAL Training, as well as some fantastic memoirs of SEAL warriors who related their incredible experiences so that we may all learn some valuable life lessons from them. I was in the U.S. Navy (1959-1963) but did not have an opportunity to attend BUD/S because of my medical problems at that time. However, I have always had enormous respect and admiration for the UDT/SEALS and other Special Ops units in the Navy, Army, Marines and Air force.

This excellent book relates the experiences of Howard E. Wasdin, a former U.S. Navy SEAL Sniper. The text is organized into two parts. Part one he relates his sad home and family challenges, but the interesting part is that he puts a positive spin on his bad home life. He was able to endure the hard and brutal SEAL training because of his tragic home life at the time. He is not bitter but actually shows enormous humanity in his story. The first part also covers his joining the Navy and of course, the difficult SEAL training program, as well as his entry into SEAL Team Two, where he served in Desert Storm.

The second part explains his slection into the legendary SEAL Team Six and his Sniper school training. This section also has the most tense and exciting story of the Battle of Mogadishu. If you saw the movie Black Hawk Down, the author was there when the fighting was most intense. He was wounded seriously in the leg in that battle. He has some harsh, but true criticism for the political decisions made which he blames for so many Americans who died during that engagement. He does not hold anything back in his evaluation of the Mogadishu battle and the mistakes that were made at that time.

In conclusion, this is a book that should be read by all Americans in order to understand what these American heros endured fighting for this country. There are also many photographs in the middle of the book showing SEAL training exercises as well as photos of the author. A must read book.

Rating: 5 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Predator Hunter: A warrior's memoir)
