He talks about how he respects all the other soldiers and then goes on to say how much better his SEALs and Delta are. He talks about how in Somalia they did not hang out with the Rangers because they were above them. Then, later goes on, many times, saying how they fought bravely. Pretty condescending if you ask me. He and his buddies beat up a Tunisian guy in a bar for criticizing the USA, then they beat up the bouncer when he tries to stop them from leaving.
When the cops arrive they take them on. I guess he takes his oath to defend the US Constitution freedom of speech seriously. Oh, and when they finally go their court date the judge dismissed all charges based on the fact that they are serving our country. I am pretty sure that joining the service, no matter how elite, does not make you above the law. I guess Wasdin and the judge disagree. He also talks about brands sunglasses and knives and pants more than my sister did when we were in high school, and that was a lot. I especially like when he goes to a church Brother after he has killed someone about how it will affect his time in eternity.

He is assured that it won't affect him negatively. OK, I guess this brother knows all.

I will never question the morals of what I am doing again. Brother Ron said its OK. And he must be right. It is pretty weird how he can ask one guy if its OK as if he is asking god himself and when he gets an answer he likes he accepts it as truth. Oh, then there are the animals that he klls for fun. He stomps a captured rat with his foot.
Kills many Kangaroos, one wild pig, a deer, gazelles, and impala, and tortures a goat or two by shooting and stabbing it in multiple locations. The goat torture was to learn how to save other soldiers. I am sure the best way to learn how to save a human being from a gunshot is to practice on goats.
The guy sounds like a jerk, and since he write the book I'm guessing its pretty accurate on that account. They knew how to have fun but would never start a fight. They would fight to win if they had no other choices but they were always the ones saying "lets just walk away. Finally, the fact is that the book is pretty poorly written.
SEAL Team Six : Memoirs of an Elite Navy SEAL Sniper [Paperback]
My review is probably poorly written but then I an a scientist not a writer. If you like this kind of book I really recommend Jarhead. Its a better book and the writing is very good.
The author is also more likable. Here is another funny thing. On goodreads I have only received agreeing comments on this review. I was berated and ridiculed as unpatriotic. View all 21 comments.
