Publisher's Summary

Now from Brandon Webb, Navy SEAL sniper and New York Times best-selling author, comes his personal account of the eight friends and fellow SEALs who made the ultimate sacrifice.
"Knowing these great men - who they were, how they lived, and what they stood for - has changed my life. We can't let them be forgotten. So read about these amazing men, share their stories, and learn from them as I have. We've mourned their deaths. Let's celebrate their lives." (Brandon Webb)
As a Navy SEAL, Brandon Webb rose to the top of the world's most elite sniper corps, experiencing years of punishing training and combat missions from the Persian Gulf to Afghanistan. Among the best of the best, he led the SEALs' clandestine sniper training program as course manager, instructing a new generation of the world's top snipers. Along the way, Webb served beside, trained, and supported men he came to know not just as fellow warriors, but as friends and, eventually, as heroes. Among Heroes gives his personal account of these eight extraordinary SEALs who gave all for their comrades - and their country.
Here are the true stories behind the remarkable valor and abiding humanity of those "sheepdogs" (as they call themselves) who protect us from the wolves of the world. Of Matt "Axe" Axelson, who perished on the Lone Survivor mission in Afghanistan. Of Chris Campbell, Heath Robinson, and J. T. Tumilson, who were among the 38 casualties of Extortion 17, the Chinook helicopter shot down in August 2011. Of Glen Doherty, Webb's best friend for more than a decade, killed while helping secure the successful rescue and extraction of American CIA and State Department diplomats in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012; and other close friends, classmates, and fellow warriors.

Both of his books are my personal favorites as far as spec ops and I have read all of them. If the author is reading this, I hope for your next book you can get into devgru and tell us some never before told stories of TEAM 6. Not bin laden!! But other bad a** stories of what they do or "are capable of doing!!" PLEASE! There isn't a single one YET! And I know the obvious reasons to the hatters of this comment." What do you say y'all??????

Respect

I really don't have the words to describe the effect this book had on me. Brandon Webb's literally memorial to his fallen brothers is nothing short of inspiring. Mr. Webb's personal words to start each chapter are an amazing touch. It is no exaggeration to say; getting to know just a small piece of these heroes stories has caused me to examine how I go about my day to day life. I am a better man for having listened to this book. Thank you Brandon and thanks to all the sheep dogs who have been, and will be down range.
