Battle Ready – By Navy SEAL Mark Donald

Mark’s book adds a new and refreshing perspective on the modern day hero of the U.S. Navy SEALs and Special Operations community. His, like many Special Ops veterans of today, is an amazing story; from young Marine, to Navy SEAL, and beyond. His is a new path that deals with the elephant in the room nobody wants to talk about, PTSD, and how it can be dealt with in a positive manner.

If you want a feel-good Navy SEAL book that is full of bravado and meaningless war stories then move on. This isn’t your book. If you want a gripping, heart wrenching book about, human sacrifice, the brotherhood, and the pound of flesh that modern combat takes from all who have been down range, then strap in and hold on for the ride.

The only people that would read Mark Donalds book are Kool aide drinkers that are not SEALS.  I am interested in what he is healing from? He has had issues since he was at SEAL TEAM 2.  He is what we call a TAKER!  He takes what he can for himself

Just ask him how much he has donated from his book back to the community!   Oh and there is thing we have called ETHOS within the community.


Mark is the only guy in the community that is making money off his PTSD its all self servinig


The book is written by a guy who all of a sudde after 10 year decides its time to talk about his so called PTSD.  The guy is a parasite.
