Attacked At Home:

A Green Beret’s Survival Story of the Fort Hood Shooting
By Capt. John Arroyo, Jr.

This is the amazing story of 2nd Lt. John M. Arroyo, Jr., who, on April 2, 2014, was shot in the throat and neck by another soldier who then went on to kill four soldiers, including himself, and wound sixteen others. 

It tells of John's journey from his childhood in Southern California to his time spent as a tattooed member of a violent street gang, and a hopeless teenage drug addict. He enlisted in the U.S. Army and ultimately became a Special Forces Green Beret and highly decorated officer after serving two tours of duty in Afghanistan and one in Iraq.


This story of the journey to the very edge of overwhelming darkness includes the story of his brave, supportive wife, Angel. Often overlooked, military spouses have a unique and powerful role in the lives of the U.S fighting forces. 

Be inspired by this story as John uses his faith to protect himself and his fellow Special Forces "Operators" while deployed to the Middle-East and then relies on it to recover from the massive wounds he sustained after being shot on Fort Hood, Texas.

Where To Find It: 

Now available in paperback, hardback, and e-book formats. Also, soon to be released as an audiobook!

What Others Are Saying:

"John Arroyo is a paradox. He has every reason to be angry and filled with revenge, depression, and regret because of his being attacked on Fort Hood. Yet, as his book unravels the details of an active shooter, you will see the unraveling of God's amazing grace in the face of complete hopelessness. Bleeding out and dazed, a Voice, John would become familiar with in years to follow, audibly commanded this young Green Beret to "Get up" when his world was falling down around him. Like a good soldier, he obeyed his newfound Commander and Chief, the King of Kings, and today he still stands, unflinchingly, challenging a young generation to stand up with him for truth and righteousness." -Dave Roever, Minister, Motivational Speaker, Author, President of Roever Foundation.

"This book is a journey into the guts of gang life in teen years through the inspiring heart of heroism as a Green Beret to a destiny of dedicated service to all mankind. This story of John Arroyo is an uncommon place yet real-life movie material that is a must-read. The realism that pours out of this book flows with the gentleness that undergirds the harshness that Arroyo has experienced and yet gushes with the passion needed to flood the pages with direction, purpose, and meaning. As an educator who stays connected with elementary school campuses to institutions that offer terminal degrees, I highly recommend this book to students of high school and college to gain insight into human life, history, contemporary literature and the life of a man--a man who has been poured out and is willing to be poured out for the sake of people, especially future generations. This book is a journey worth sharing, a life worth recording, and a read that should not be passed up by anyone who cares about life in general or life in America, especially as it relates to young men and women." -Dr. Sheba K. George, Superintendent & Founder, Newman International Academy


"In a very personal, human interest narrative, John Arroyo sets forth a very readable life story of an individual who grew up in poverty, surrounded by street gangs, to complete a successful career as a U.S. Army Green Beret and later civilian, continuing in a lifetime of service. This success was shaped by a faith instilled early on within his life by a loving grandmother. Equally important is Arroyo's inclusion of his wife's story, as she lived through the challenges and opportunities presented in their life together. This book is a must-read." -Dr. Tom Seals, Professor of Biblical Practice & Chaplain to Veterans, Lipscomb University, Author of God's Word for Warriors

"A powerful testimony of the overcomer's life. John Arroyo's improbable rise from urban gangs to U.S. Army warrior-leadership to mass-shooting survivor to gospel preacher is a classic, faith-stirring epic. Even more remarkable to me was John's ability to accept all life threw at him - successes and failures; triumphs and tragedies - with a trusting, child-like faith in the goodness and possibilities of God." -Tim Moynihan, Pastor, Former U.S. Army Ranger, Author of Prodigal Avenger

"If you want to appreciate what God can do in the life of a person serving in the military, then this book is a must-read. God takes John as he is and walks alongside him as he experiences the near-fatal betrayal by a fellow soldier." -Colonel Kenneth Sorenson, (Chaplain) U.S. Army, Active Duty
