The Trident: The Forging and Reforging of a Navy SEAL Leader by Jason Redman with John R. Bruning. It isn't an easy read, but what Jason went through wasn't easy. I had trouble putting the book down to sleep. To me, it was a romance story, the romance of a man and his career balanced with a woman with him he fit perfectly. Inspiring. I'm glad I read A Warrior's Faith, first. No, they are not purposely connected. However, Jason Redman and Ryan Job did know each other and both of them mentioned the other in their book. Small world.
