The incredible true story of former Navy SEAL Mike Day, who survived being shot twenty-seven 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 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Perfectly Wounded is an incredible story, perfectly told. Mike Day not only takes the reader inside the life of a Navy SEAL, he expertly takes the reader inside the mind of a trauma survivor, as well. He does this without darkness or foreboding and capably illustrates the meaning behind my favorite sentence in the book: ‘I have come to understand that if the experience of war does not profoundly alter you in some way, then you may actually have a problem.’" Jason Kander, New York Times bestselling author
“A memoir that goes beyond war—one that shares a story of awe-inspiring resiliency, courage, healing, and love on a thousand levels.” Major Scott A. Huesing, USMC (Ret.), author of Echo in Ramadi
“Inspiring…Readers interested in care programs for returning veterans will find Day’s account invaluable.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
