Tom Bracken had seen the worst of battle in Vietnam and survived, but still needed the saving grace of Christ. In Tommy he tells his story of adventure and intrigue as a one of the Navy's top trained SEALs, and how military achievement still couldn't fill his heart with a father's love and approval he longed for. Embark on the adventure of a lifetime and find a God who saves.
A candid autobiography of the making of a U.S. Navy SEAL that grips hard and doesn't let go. The furious tornado of the turbulent 60's sucks Tommy into an uncontrollable maelstrom of violence and chaos. His response is to push the pedal of life to the floor and drive it wide open. The military saves him from his environment, but can it save him from himself?
