Many of us grew up reading fictional books of Navy SEALs or other special operations soldiers, or watching our favorite fictional heroes on the T.V. or movie screen. Classics such as the original movie Red Dawn or Rambo. Of course there were also great books such as Fallen Angels, which was written by Walter Myers where we lived through the experiences of a hand full of warriors in the Vietnam War. Times and society have changed however, with many children of today idealizing well-dressed vampires. There has been a positive shift though as our true American heroes have taken to becoming writers.
Today, we can all find best selling novels written by real special operations personnel. Their stories are non-fictional accounts of their experiences and knowledge. So much great information to learn from and operations to live through. Doing so allows us all to understand the bravery and sacrifices these men have made defending our freedom. Rambo is no longer just an imaginary figure; these warriors are now showing us their true and real worlds, through their writing.
