5.0 out of 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!

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.)

5.0 out of 5 stars "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!

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I, being an U.S. Air Force, military brat...my beloved father and my hero, served 23 years...died from injuries sustained by the Vietnam war at 43 years old.
I just LOVE this true story. It's REAL!! And I cannot get enough of Mr Wasdin's life accounts. He is VERY inspirational.and allows me to relate, somewhat, of the zeal and commitment he had to become a NAVY SEAL.
Thank you, Mr Wasdin, for your services to OUR country. Hooya!!!
(My appreciation to your family for enduring your extended time away while you trained and served)...my sweet mother, a widow since 1973, who is still alive, served right along with my father. Not many civilians know just what the families go through, especially the wives of OUR HEROES....and their children.
THANK YOU AGAIN FOR YOUR SERVICE, Mr Wasdin. You are my hero too!!!
Sincerely, M. Manolio
