I’m getting ready for Memorial Day by reading Marcus Luttrell’s Service : A Navy Seal At War

I got myself a copy of Marcus Luttrell’s Service: A Navy SEAL at War, which I am very much looking forward to reading. I loved his Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10, even though it made me cry — which is not something I usually look for in a book.

In his first book, written with Patrick Robinson, Luttrell came across as an extremely appealing character — patriotic, insanely committed to the service, humble, funny, and a little bit snarky. In his most recent book, Luttrell is getting help from James D. Hornfischer. I hope that I get to hear the same “Luttrell” voice in my head. I’ll keep you guys posted.

    I’m re-reading Red Storm Rising by Tom Clancy for the first time in more than 20 years.  Very enjoyable.

    It’s not really a tribute to our armed forces, nor specifically to our fallen, but it his highly complimentary to our military, written in a style that military men enjoy, and it’s patriotic as all get-out, like everything Clancy has done.

    The only reason why I read things for entertainment is for the emotional outcome. That is the highest payout, although there are other kinds of payouts such as humor, comedy, education, etc.
