Book Review: Navy Seals


I was in Memphis for a few days over Spring Break and found myself flipping through the book NAVY SEALS: Their Untold Story by Dick Couch and Williams Doyle.  My brother-in-law had recently read the book and offered to let me borrow it.  Actually my sister loaned it to me and I’m not sure if he knows if I have it.  Well…he runs this website, so I guess this is how we will find out if he really reads my blog or not!  JD…I have your book!

I have always been incredibly fascinated my military history for a variety of reasons, but mostly because of the fact that I am always eager to learn from servant leaders.  John 15:13 reminds us, “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.”  The US Military is a volunteer organization that is full of servant leaders that have taken a step forward to say…send me, I’ll go and fight for you.

The most interesting part of this book was reading through the SEALS reports of what it was like to storm the beaches of Normandy.  I’ve seen Saving Private Ryan and read a lot about those days, but it was interesting to read it from the perspective of those that were in the boats approaching the beach.  What incredible courage and bravery!  All so we can enjoy the freedoms that we have today.

I am grateful for this opportunity to learn about the SEALS as it was a great reminder to pray for these men and their families that do so much to keep us safe!
