From the Back Cover: When you are a Navy SEAL, you learn first-hand what it means to put your life on the line. And you learn pretty quickly that there are truly things worth dying for. In a fast-paced and action-packed narrative, Navy SEAL commander Rorke Denver tackles the questions that have emerged about America’s past decade at war—from what makes a hero to why we fight and what it does to us.
Heroes are not always the guys who jump on grenades. Sometimes, they are the snipers who decide to hold their fire, the wounded operators who find fresh ways to contribute, or the wives who keep the families together back home. Even a SEAL commander—especially a SEAL commander—knows that. But what’s a hero, really? What do we have a right to expect from our heroes? How should we hold them accountable? Amid all the loose talk of heroes, these questions are seldom asked.
As a SEAL commander, Rorke Denver is uniquely qualified to answer questions about what makes a hero or a leader, why men kill, how best to serve your country, how battlefield experiences can elevate us, and most importantly, why we fight and what it does for and to us. In Worth Dying For, Denver tackles many of these issues by sharing his personal experiences from the forefront of war today.
Denver applies some of his SEAL-sense to nine big-picture, news-driven questions of war and peace, in a way that appeals to all sides of the public conversation. By broadening the issues, sharing his insights, and achieving what civilian political leaders have been utterly unable to, Denver eloquently shares answers to America’s most burning questions about war, heroism, and what it all means for America’s future.
This our country, from sea to shining sea: The United States Of America. I am not sure what our youth are taught now however when I was growing up we were taught if we served in our military then we should be prepared to die in our Country’s service. Commander Denver was a Navy SEAL serving overseas and he has written this book to address ten pressing issues: What Makes A Hero, How To Be Brave, The Right and Wrong Ways To Kill, Bridging The Military-Civilian Divide, What We Really Owe Our Returning Veterans. Commander Denver tells us there will be a lot of talk about service, which is where everything else begins. This is our country. It is great. It has the potential to be greater still. This book will help us get there. This is a book that will help you see the greatness God has put here. This is also a book that will make a great gift to friends and family so that they can have a mind-change about the wonder of this country as well..
