Publisher Description

The incredible true story of former Navy SEAL Mike Day, who survived being shot twenty-seven times while deployed in Iraq.
On the night of April 6, 2007, in Iraq's Anbar Province, Senior Chief Mike Day, his team of Navy SEALs, and a group of Iraqi scouts were on the hunt for a high-level al Qaeda cell. Day was the first to enter a 12x12 room where four terrorist leaders were waiting in ambush. When the gunfight was over, he took out all four terrorists in the room, but not before being shot twenty-seven times and hit with grenade shrapnel. Miraculously, Day cleared the rest of the house and rescued six women and children before walking out on his own to an awaiting helicopter, which flew him to safety.
While in the hospital, the Navy SEAL lost fifty-five pounds in two weeks. It took almost two years for Day to physically recover from his injuries, although he still deals with pain. Like so many veterans, doctors diagnosed Day with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury -- the invisible wounds of war.
Perfectly Wounded is the remarkable story of an American hero whose incredible survival defies explanation, and whose blessed life of service continues in the face of unimaginable odds.

Touching and fast-moving read

I enjoyed Mike’s story, his honesty and even the way he laughs when telling some pretty raw tales. The book gets a little sloppy / chaotic in the last 40 minutes or so, a lot of repetition and some poorly woven themes. But overall, the book is so enjoyable and emotionally moving that I can’t really fault the guy. He seems like a good man to have over for beer and bbq with friends. I only wish he’d answer the voice of Jesus, who is clearly trying to reach him and bring him back to His flock.
