In April of 1972, SEAL Lieutenant Tom Norris risked his life in an unprecedented ground rescue of two American airmen who were shot down behind enemy lines in North Vietnam, a feat for which he would be awarded the Medal of Honor--an award that represents the pinnacle of heroism and courage. Just six months later, Norris was sent on a dangerous special reconnaissance mission that would take his team deep into enemy territory. On that mission, they engaged a vastly superior force. In the running gun battle that ensued, Lieutenant Norris was severely wounded; a bullet entered his left eye and exited the left side of his head. SEAL Petty Officer Mike Thornton, under heavy fire, fought his way back onto a North Vietnamese beach to rescue his officer. This was the first time Tom and Mike had been on a combat mission together. Mike's act of courage and loyalty marks the only time in modern history that the Medal of Honor has been awarded in a combat action where one recipient received the Medal for saving the life of another. By Honor Bound is the story of Tom Norris and Mike Thornton, two living American heroes who grew up very differently, entered military service and the Navy SEAL teams for vastly different reasons, and were thrown together for a single combat mission--a mission that would define their lives from that day forward.

The story of a small Arizona mining town boy who grew up with dreams of travel and adventure and someday donning the uniform of a United States Marine. After joining the Corps at 17 years of age, volunteering for Embassy Duty at 18 years of age and embarking on a 28 year journey to experience all the world had to offer, both good and bad. Two wars and several expeditions and campaigns later he emerged to return to the civilian life he barely remembered and along with his wife to raise their two youngest sons Gunner and Cannon (the eldest Quint would already be on his own path as an adult). The toughest thing for a career Marine and most career veterans to do, is to figure out who they are supposed to be when they hang up the uniform. The author somehow stumbled into his answer when some local parents decided he needed to be a Scoutmaster for their local Boy Scout troop and mentor their young boys. The next ten years would prove the most rewarding as he would help mentor hundreds of boys and over twenty Eagle Scouts, many the sons of single mothers looking for that positive and strong male influence for their sons. Each week the Troop meetings would culminate with a Scoutmasters minute where the author would impart a lesson in character by recounting a tale of combat exploits and personal sacrifice which exemplified the particular trait chosen for that week's lesson. Honor, courage, selflessness, integrity are but a few of the traits covered in this book that will have the reader laughing, crying and often in awe. This book captures these lessons and more. A great read on how to pull your child's head away from the phone, computer or television screen long enough to develop some life skills and a value system that will serve them well in life.
