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.

Perfectly Wounded...just imagine being shot 27 times and also having a grenade tossed at you...all in the space of a few minutes...And, the miracle of surviving that many shots...The explanation in the memoir gives the reader how this was possible from the medical point of view Incredible to say the very least.
It covers his early life, and traumatic to say the least, and also his boot camp , BUDs training, his tours of duty with several SEAL teams, and other duty stations while on active duty. Lots of territory within these pages and the BUDs training is explained in great detail, as well.
His wife, Brenda was indeed such a wonderful part of his life after being severely injured.. Try to imagine, checking yourself out of Bethesda after 16 days and going home...the estimate was a stay of 3 months. Talk about intestinal fortitude...
As he explains in his memoir, the greatest accomplishment in his life was after he was discharged from the USN. He worked at Special Operations Command as a case manager and was involved with battling the bureaucracy at the VA. This job was more like that of a social worker which involved case coalition with those wounded and were recovering...The story of Holly, the Independent Duty Corpsman, will tear at your heartstrings.
He has a nonprofit organization which helps wounded warriors. It is stressed in his memoir that PTSD and depression should not be treated as stigmas.
Just an all encompassing read which covers so many details of his life...All of which contributed to make him the man that he has become.
I am both honored and proud to call Mike Day my Brother as a Chief Petty Officer. Most humbling to me...
BZ and Hooyah. Thank you for writing this most personal account of your life.
Most highly recommended.
