Battle Ready: Memoir of a SEAL Warrior Medic
Mark L. Donald joined the U S Marines straight out of high school as a way to escape his abusive father and avoid trouble with neighborhood gangs. Given the work ethic installed by his mother and an innate competitive sense, he quickly earned a position on a Reconnaissance Team, the equivalent of a Navy Seal or Army Green Beret. During the extensive training required for this team, he observed the Navy Hospital Corpsmen HM1 at work, and realized that this was what he was truly meant to do. The story of his transition to a Navy HM1, during the Persian Gulf and Afghanistan War makes for a gripping read. This book gives a great inside look at life on the battlefield and the devotion required of a true soldier.

Her observations about men, body image, and life are both spot-on and humorous. Those who enjoyed Tina Fey’s Bossypants will find this novel particularly enjoyable.
