Publisher's Summary

The epic memoir of an Alaskan pararescue jumper, Special Forces Operator, and decorated war hero.
"That Others May Live" is a mantra that defines the fearless men of Alaska's 212th Pararescue Unit, the PJs, one of the most elite military forces on the planet. Whether they are rescuing citizens injured and freezing in the Alaskan wilderness or saving wounded Rangers and SEALs in blazing firefights at war, the PJs are the least known and most highly trained of America's warriors. Never Quit is the true story of how Jimmy Settle, an Alaskan shoe-store clerk, became a Special Forces Operator and war hero. After being shot in the head during a dangerous high mountain operation in the rugged Watapur Valley in Afghanistan, Jimmy returns to battle with his teammates for a heroic rescue, the bullet fragments stitched over and still in his skull. In a cross between a suicide rescue mission and an against-all-odds mountain battle, his team of PJs risk their lives again in an epic firefight. When his helicopter is hit and begins leaking fuel, Jimmy finds himself in the worst possible position as a rescue specialist - forced to leave members from his own team behind. Jimmy will have to risk everything to get back into the battle and bring back his brothers.
From death-defying Alaskan wilderness training, wild rescues, and vicious battles against the Taliban, this is an explosive special operations memoir unlike any that has come before and the true story of a man from humble beginnings who became an American hero.

This book does such a tremendous job of grabbing you and pulling you in. if your not on the Military, that's ok...Jimmy does a good job of coaching you to understanding while keeping you very intrigued. If your in the Military you can identify with quite a bit of what Jimmy talks about, particularly if you deployed to a combat zone. Either way you can't help but respect the stuff Jimmy went through just for a chance to get in the fight...and fight he did! You're the Man Jimmy....God Bless!

engaging and inspirational.

This book was amazing and the writing was phenomenal. it was engaging it kept you interested from beginning to end. I have had the pleasure to know Jimmy and work with him for a short time and his non assuming good-natured personality would never lead you to believe he has been through everything he's been through. I have respected Jimmy for as long as I have known him but after reading this that respect has gone to fool on admiration. I now know not to call him a hero but he is a true American in every sense of the word. thank you for sharing this story. Never quit!!
