This is a link to about all the amazing things our good friend Mike Day is doing.

Navy SEAL Sr. Chief Mike Day had never been shot before, but that changed dramatically one night in April 2007 when he was shot 27 times.

Day joined Tucker Carlson this morning on “Fox and Friends Weekend” to share the story of his miraculous survival.

Day explained that he opened the door that fateful night, and the terrorists beat him to the trigger, shooting his rifle out of his hands and hitting him 16 times in the arms, legs and abdomen – with the remaining 11 shots hitting his body armor, which amazingly absorbed multiple strikes.

“Anywhere you can put your finger on me, I was shot, except for my head,” Day said. “And here I am today, to tell the story.”

He said that once he realized he was actually being shot, he “asked God to get me home to my girls,” which he noted was the first time he had ever said a real prayer.

Day then used his pistol and muscle memory to do what he was trained to do and fight his way out of the room.

After a couple years recovering in the hospital, Day said he feels he is being called to raise funds for the Brain Treatment Center through Mike Day’s Tri Challenge.

Day will compete in the Ironman 70.3 triathlon in Florida to raise funds for the care and treatment of wounded warriors and dependent children who have suffered severe brain injuries.

The funds will provide customized treatment programs to individuals at the Carrick Brain Treatment Center, a non-profit organization in Texas.

Watch Day tell his incredible story in the clip from “Fox and Friends Weekend” above.
