Perfectly Wounded AudioBook Summary
The incredible true story of former Navy SEAL Mike Day, who survived being shot 27 times while deployed in Iraq.
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 12×12 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 27 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 55 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.
