Summary
"Mat Best may be the only man alive known for both crazy-intense military ops and crazy-funny YouTube videos. In Freedom On!, he uses the gallows humor and ribald sensibility that earned him over a million Facebook followers to tell his personal story of military service and the bumpy transition to civilian life and successful entrepreneurship. Beginning as a teenager in a military family dealing with 9/11, continuing through the intensity of four years as an Army Ranger and five years as a private military contractor, and concluding with one of the most meaningful moments in Best's life -- screening a movie he wrote, produced, and starred in for soldiers deployed overseas -- Best gives readers a fuller sense of the person they might only know from his major online and video persona. With equal amounts of heart and balls, this is the unapologetic, laugh-your-ass-off military book that vets and civilians alike have been waiting for"--
