Publisher's Description

In the aftermath of war, a Navy SEAL finds faith, hope, and love.

Howard Wasdin, author of SEAL Team Six: Memoirs of an Elite Navy SEAL Sniper (twenty-two weeks on the New York Times best-seller list), survived the firestorm made famous in Black Hawk Down only to return to a world without support, without a mission, and soon without his family. Wounded in Mogadishu and facing a torturous journey of rehabilitation and recovery, he came home to find his marriage falling apart and his world upended. When he met Debbie, an accountant emerging from her own trial by fire, he realized this might be his last hope, and the two together began a journey of rediscovering their faith in God and their ability to trust in God’s goodness.

The Last Rescue is an unforgettable tale of brokenness and healing, going deep into the firing line of modern warfare, through the agony of broken marriages, and onto a path of redemption and love. With a clear-eyed view of the inevitability of heartache and the power of God’s faithfulness, Howard and Debbie remind us that no matter what our circumstances, we should never, ever, give up hope.

    There are many nights that if you were to visit me, you would find me curled up reading. Reading a book is the most underrated form of entertainment, and I highly encourage more practice the habit. All any of us has to do is look around and see what a blessing it is to be able to read, especially with the easy access we have here in America. With that said, I highly recommend The Last Rescue be one of the books in your personal library.

    I sat up till the wee hours of the morning until I was finished with this raw and rare behind the glory of a SEALs life. Howard shares his heart and life very transparently as he takes responsibility for his mistakes and choices. Howards wife, Debbie, also shares from a wifes perspective what her experience is with not just being married to a former SEAL, but some of the ways their family has wrestled through times of hardship. Readers will glean how servicemen and their families struggle internally when their service for our country is over after a serious battle injury nearly takes a life. Howard shares how words are powerful, especially when he was at his lowest point and what brought him encouragement to keep moving forward.

    Transition is more than difficult for the service men and women who return to civilian life. This book was an eye opener for me. Simple words of thanks to vets go a long way to heal their hearts and let them know their service wasnt for nothing. The church might want to play a bigger role in helping these people find healing of their heart, mind and soul. I thank Howard and his wife for sharing their story very honestly with America and beyond as it needs to be told and shared so Americans can come alongside them. Howard was also part of the team that was in the movie Blackhawk Down. In the book, he shares how accurate or inaccurate the movie depicted their experiences.

    So grab a cup of joe (coffee) curl up in your favorite chair and read a very touching account of one mans journey from the brink of despair to where he is today.

    How do you go from an elite warrior to a broken man? How do you find meaning and purpose when your body can no longer perform the skills that gave you an identity? How do you find support to endure rehabilitation and recovery? How do you go from being valued for your tactical skills to being unable to put your marriage and family back together?

    These are some of the questions touched on in Howard Wasdins book, The Last Rescue: How Faith and Love Saved a Navy SEAL Sniper. Wasdin is a former member of SEAL Team Six who survived the firestorm in Mogadishu made famous in the movie Black Hawk Down. Wounded in the battle, he returned home to discover his marriage was falling apart and his world turned upside down. On top of that, he faced the challenge of rehabilitation and recovery. His greatest challenge, however, was discovering a new purpose in life.

    At the same time Howard was recovering from his wounds and trying to find his place in a peacetime world, his future wife, Debbie, was walking through her own trial by fire. When they met, they began a journey together by rediscovering their faith in God and their ability to trust in Gods goodness.

    The book is a very fast read. Wasdin weaves together his time in the SEALs with his childhood years and his journey through rehabilitation and building a new life. He shares lessons he learned along with Scriptural principles without being overly preachy. He tells how he learned the importance of love and forgiveness.

    Having read his previous book, SEAL Team Six: Memoirs of an Elite Navy SEAL Sniper, I was curious to read the next installment of how he adapted and adjusted to life at home. While I would not call it a great book, it is an interesting story. The book would be a good gift for someone interested in the military. It would be a good conversation starter to lead into spiritual things.

    Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze.com http://BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
