2nd Lt. John M. Arroyo, Jr., who, on April 2, 2014, was shot in the throat and neck by another soldier who then went on to kill four soldiers, including himself, and wound sixteen others. He tells the story of his life from his childhood in Southern California, including his time spent as member of a violent street gang, a hopeless teenage drug addict and then his enlistment in the U.S. Army where he ultimately becomes a Special Forces Green Beret and highly decorated officer after serving two tours of duty in Afghanistan and one in Iraq.
The book also tells how he uses his Christian faith to protect himself and his fellow Special Forces “Operators” while deployed to the Middle East and then relies on it to recover from the massive wounds he sustained after being shot at Fort Hood, Texas. John Arroyo is a paradox. He has every reason to be angry and filled with revenge, depression, and regret because of being attacked on Fort Hood. Yet, as his book unravels the details of an active shooter, you will see the unraveling of God’s amazing grace in the face of complete hopelessness.
