There are many things in our lives that we want to remember: our son’s first steps, our daughter’s first dance. For all Americans, among the things that we should always remember is the sacrifices made by the valiant men and women who put their lives on the line in the service of their country.
A book by Eric Blehm helps America do just that. In Fearless, one is taken into the secret world of SEAL Team SIX, the SEAL Team credited with taking out the brains behind the 9/11 attacks: Osama bin Laden.
Fearless tells the story of fallen Navy SEAL Adam Brown, who died on March 17, 2010. A description of the book in its official website shared: “FEARLESS is the story of a man of extremes, whose determination was fueled by faith, family, and the love of a woman. It’s about a man who waged a war against his own worst impulses and persevered to reach the top tier of the U.S. military. Always the first to volunteer for the most dangerous assignments, Adam’s final act of bravery led to the ultimate sacrifice.”
Brown’s roots could be traced back to Arkansas, and before becoming among the Navy’s elite, there was a time when his primary goal is to don his high school’s football jersey.
It was heart-wrenching to read an excerpt of that letter that many an operator going into combat has written, and undoubtedly hope against hope that the recipients do not get to read. Brown had written to his children: “I’m not afraid of anything that might happen to me on this Earth, because I know no matter what, nothing can take my spirit from me.”
FEARLESS is available in both hardcover (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, ChristianBook.com, Books-A-Million, Indie Bound) and e-versions (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, ChristianBook.com, iBookstore).
