Attacked at Home! A Green Beret’s Survival Story of the Fort Hood Shooting
Attacked at Home: A Green Beret’s Survival Story of the Fort Hood Shooting is the amazing story about 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. Attacked at Home is also about John’s life beginning with his childhood in Southern California, including his time spent as a tattooed 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.
