My son, Scott, got me started reading books about American heroes. He suggested I read The Heart and the Fist: The Education of a Humanitarian, the Making of a Navy SEAL.
With this book, I was hooked. Eric Greitens' journey moved me. His life is a picture of servanthood and a challenge to the reader to become a better person.
“There were a number of definitions of courage, but now I was seeing it in its simplest form: you do what has to be done day after day, and you never quit.”
― Eric Greitens, The Heart and the Fist: The Education of a Humanitarian, the Making of a Navy SEAL
The next book I read was A Warrior's Faith. At points in this story about Ryan Job's life I was impressed, mad, and heartbroken.
I am currently reading, Seal of God by Chad Williams. He takes you into his journey of becoming a Navy SEAL. I'd heard of Hell Week, but there is so much more to their training I'd never dreamed about.
Reading books about our American heroes has given me a deeper appreciation for our service men and women and their families. My ears perk up when I hear stories on the news about our military personnel, and I pray more for them.
I'd like to challenge you to read at least one book this year about an American hero.
