  21. “We’ve trained and trained for a reason: to be better at the craft of war than our enemy, to use our skill to perform the mission, and to accept the risks.

  29. “Service is selflessness–the opposite of the lifestyle that we see so much of in America today. The things that entertain us don’t often lift us up, or show us as the people we can rise up to become. The people who appear in this book–and others who did things I can’t talk about–are my role models. They quietly live out the idea expressed in the Bible (John 15:13): “Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” ~ Marcus Luttrell
  30. “…these are the problems of the modern U.S. combat soldier, the constant worry about overstepping the mark, and an American media that delights in trying to knock us down. Which we have done nothing to deserve. Except, perhaps, love our country and everything it stands for.” ~ Marcus Luttrell
