First, let me say that this is my first Amazon review so bear with me...

I found this book in a roundabout way. I saw the author, Tom Satterly, in a post on LinkedIn that I happened to click on (it was him at a change of command at Fort Bragg). After viewing his profile and learning his history I saw that he just published his book, All Secure.

After reading the full title, I knew I had to hear what he had to say. Like Tom, I'm an Army vet and also suffer from PTSD and depression due to wartime experiences. I didn't know it just yet, but I needed this book.

Tom's account of his time in America's most elite unite SFOD aka Delta Force is intriguing and impressive but also painful. Tom pulls absolutely no punches, he details the struggle to maintain near perfection as he was in a never ending selection course for the Unit, always striving to prove he could tackle any hurdle. He did just that and his personal life suffered.

The most striking thing about this book isn't that it just explains the Unit's critical role in our nation's defense (it definitely does), rather its the honesty and complete lack of bravado with which he describes his very painful and personal struggle with PTSD. I have yet to read any account of a warrior's struggle so full of honesty and it had a profound effect on me.

I believe Tom and his wife Jen are on their next mission - to prevent the downward spiral that affects so many war veterans. This book is one piece of that puzzle.

If you or someone you know is struggling with PTSD, depression, addiction borne out of traumatic experiences please give them a copy of this book. It may just save a life and help them understand that there is help and a way out - through friends, family and brotherhood you can put your life together. Tom describes in great detail how he got to the bottom and how with help a warrior can climb back up and take up the next challenge.

Thank you Tom for writing this book, you're bravery on many fronts is admirable!
