There are few, if any, people in the world who knew Chris Kyle as well as Kevin "Dauber" Lacz. Through war, fame, fortune, and death, Kevin has remained true to his friend and brother, Chris Kyle. Many, like myself, knew some of Chris s story; few, like Kevin, knew virtually all of it. Many people change their view of the world once they are thrust into the limelight of Hollywood and acting, but Kevin did not. He remained true to his friends, his family, the TEAMs and the Code by which he lives his life. He now has devoted a substantial portion of his life to helping others. For that I respect him greatly, and am proud to call him my friend. This book is about the amazing true grit of SEAL Team 3 Cadillac in some of the worst days of battle in the history of the US SEAL Teams (and the United States). The epitome of the SEAL attitude of never quit runs through Kevin s veins and this book s pages. A must read. --Scott McEwen, #1 New York Times bestselling co-author of American Sniper and the nationally bestselling Sniper Elite series of novels"
