July 4th Tribute To Navy SEAL Matt Axelson: Lost Hero

We are in the final stages of securing sponsorship for a new series on SOFREP TV titled “Lost Heroes”, which is also my next book.

This series will feature the men of US SOCOM who gave all during their service, true heroes.  The show will take you on their journey, and show what a positive impact they had and still have in this life with their friends, teammates, and family members.

    Since I drive a ways to work (40 miles) i listen to audiobooks, as i listened to this, it made me want to cry for these BRAVE men. doing a crap job that they love. It should be read by Everyone that believes in America and taught in schools. God bless them all, Living and deceased Sgt B

    @TheUltimateRobDarken  @HugeFan  you mean like the politicans in washington?


    Wow. This is a really great idea. Im really looking forward to seeing this. When this country loses a guy like Axelson I can't help but lament their future contribution to our country. We've lost these good men not only in the present but also in their contribution in the future as husbands, fathers and citizens who know what it takes to defend freedom and this country.

    Lone Survivor just bought the Book and my next read - VERY SAD -

    Reading Lone Survivor.  I had to put that book down on a 2-page basis once the shootin started.  Reading Marcus' account of Axelson's fate, and Murphy's... was literally word-by-word.   Once I got done... the wife read the book and I could tell by the pages where she was and brought in tissues before she hit the hard parts.  She asked:  "what are you doing?"  "you'll see.  trust me."
