The Last Rescue by Howard Wasdin, with Joel Kilpatrick

This a story of how a US military hero went from being number one and important – to dealing with surviving, grief, and being forgotten. Focusing on the daily life struggles to find identity and meaning as a survivor, Mr. Wasdin takes you on a journey of discovery with him.

While I did enjoy the story (who doesn’t admire and respect a military hero?!), I have to say that the story was a little slow-paced. After the well-written, thrilling first chapter, it descends to little more than a man’s journal of a betrayed life.  It did not capture my attention very well.  I did read it all, mainly because I wanted to see what happened to him later in life. 😉 I appreciated how he gives God credit for being his strength. That is admirable.


I did enjoy hearing what life is like for a veteran after his military stint is over.  I would recommend it IF you are bored or just really love personal stories. But if you need a spell-binding book, it is not for you.

However, I still highly respect and honor Mr. Wasdin for his service and hard work for our country! Thank you Sir!
