They are America's shadow warriors. Members of the Joint Special Operations community, the tip of the spear in the war against radical Islamic terror.
These brave men and women are uniquely trained and bring extraordinary force against the nation's enemies in some of the world's most dangerous places.
Many pay a price most Americans will never know. They often don't receive the recognition they deserve.
Lt. Col. Oliver North and CBN News Military Correspondent Chuck Holton accompanied these special operations warriors on a few of the most highly classified missions.
Those clandestine assignments included flying night missions in blacked out helicopters, taking down high-value terror targets, raiding opium labs in the remote Afghan countryside - and providing compassionate care for many who've never seen a doctor.
North and Holton have carefully documented these stories of heroism, compassion, and survival in their new book, American Heroes in Special Operations.
The behind-the-scenes accounts and full-color photographs provide an insider's glimpse of the sacrifices these heroes make every day.
North and Holton will talk more about their new book on The 700 Club, Dec. 13. Click play to watch the interview.
