Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell returned from his star-crossed mission in Afghanistan with his bones shattered and his heart broken. So many had given their lives to save him-and he would have readily done the same for them. As he recuperated, he wondered why he and others, from America's founding to today, had been willing to sacrifice everything-including themselves-for the sake of family, nation, and freedom.
In Service, we follow Marcus Luttrell to Iraq, where he returns to the battlefield as a member of SEAL Team 5 to help take on the most dangerous city in the world: Ramadi, the capital of war-torn Al Anbar Province. There, in six months of high-intensity urban combat, he would be part of what has been called the greatest victory in the history of U.S. Special Operations forces. We also return to Afghanistan and Operation Redwing, where Luttrell offers powerful new details about his miraculous rescue. Throughout, he reflects on what it really means to take on a higher calling, about the men he's seen lose their lives for their country, and the legacy of those who came and bled before.
A thrilling war story, Service is also a profoundly moving tribute to the warrior brotherhood, to the belief that nobody goes it alone, and no one will be left behind.

love this book ~ add it to your must read list!!
Wish I read rather than listened to Collins.
I'm a huge fan of Audible.com and will NEVER listen to Kevin Collins again. His eagerness to sell the story ruined it for me.
Within the first hour of the book I was skeptical of Collins's performance. To me he sounded as though he was delivering a sermon and over emphasized much of the book. In my opinion, the last 25% of the content saved the book. Partly since Collins's role was limited and partly because it was an interesting perspective. One that I have not found in other SEAL books.
Perhaps. I don't feel as strongly about this book as I have other SEAL books previously.
Seemed Marcus Luttrell wanted to capitalize on his past success and write a public thank you note to all the people in his past. At times it seemed like a Navy sponsored fluff piece. I do hope that some of these stories get their own book in the future.
