ok read

I love military books. I tried to like this one & I just didn't. I've seen the movie (pretty good) and then read the book. I don't disagree the Chris is heroic and saved a lot of lives and it's a tragedy that he was killed by another military person. This first hand account is just ugh. Almost the entire time of "being a sniper & we live in the shadows & are silent professionals", Chris spends almost the entire book bragging about how many kills of insurgents (or savages as he calls them) and then so many kills he stepped back so he could let the other guys in the platoon get a few. Also brags about fighting and getting arrested and getting out of jail with no charges. His wife contributed the the book a lot and I felt sorry for her since he cared more about the SEAL team and country before his wife and 2 kids. Also disrespect to higher up officers who he called "ultra cautious pussies" It just seemed this book was him telling how great he is and didn't really seem to care about his wife on her own and just kept reenlisting. Good for him at the end for finally leaving the Navy and starting a kick ass foundation to help wounded vets.
