I AM A SEAL TEAM SIX WARRIOR
Winner of Young Adult Library Services Association's (YALSA) Quick Picks for Reluctant Readers. Popular with children 12 and older, this is the Young Adult version of bestseller SEAL Team Six.
When the Navy sends their elite, they send the SEALs. When the SEALs send their elite, they send SEAL Team Six--a secret unit made up of the finest soldiers in the country, if not the world. This is the dramatic tale of how Howard Wasdin overcame a tough childhood to live his dream and enter the exciting and dangerous world of Navy SEALS and Special Forces snipers.
Soon he was fighting for his life in Africa, hunting the Somalian warlord Aidid. But the mission fell apart when his small band of soldiers found themselves cut off from help and desperately trying to rescue downed comrades during a routine mission. The Battle of Mogadishu, as it become known, left 18 American soldiers dead and 73 wounded.
This is Howard Wasdin's story of overcoming numerous obstacles to become an elite American warrior.
