Navy SEAL Credits Higher Power for Surviving Horrors That Most Can’t Even Imagine

Our service members are more than just heroes — they’re strong, incredibly resilient men and women who find ways to fight through horrific injuries and come back stronger than ever. Navy SEAL Mike Day was shot 27 times in Iraq, but he says that prayer brought him home to his family.

Not even 27 bullets could stop Navy SEAL Sr. Chief Mike Day from getting back home to see his family.

On the night of April 6, 2007, in Iraq’s Anbar Province, Navy SEAL Sr. Chief Mike Day came face-to-face with four heavily armed Al Qaeda leaders inside a room

Despite being shot 27 times at close range, Day was able to defeat the terrorists, clear the rest of the house and walk under his own power to a medevac helicopter.

The Al-Qaeda terrorists managed to shoot the rifle out of his hand, which means that Day went real-life Rambo on them with just his sidearm. Furthermore, he wasn’t just shot twenty-seven times; he received shrapnel wounds from a grenade as well.

Day explained that after being shot in every place with the exception of the head, he prayed asking for God to get him back home to his two girls and wife. He credits guardian angels for helping him beat what some might call impossible odds.

It is amazing what faith can do to help get us through the toughest situations. And now that he has recovered from his injuries, Day is now going to attempt to run half an Ironman race to raise money for other wounded warriors.
