Until recently I have been somewhat depressed as to what the political process is bringing this country in who will be the next commander in chief (no capitalization on purpose) either dumb or dumber. I am not sure which one is which. A clueless buffoon and draft dodger who had the audacity to mock John McCain, or a vile ill tempered lying crook who has shown nothing but disdain for our military her entire life.
After reading this book I now realize it does not matter. As long as we have men like Tommy Norris and Mike Thornton walking among us. Drinking the same water and breathing the same air as the rest of us. Rising to the occasion when necessary and doing what has to be done. As long as we have men like that in this country we will be just fine.
Thank you men. Thank you for your service and dedication to this country and your fellow comrades.
At one time I was single, working for a Congressman on Capitol Hill and was fortunate to meet some members of the Navy. I have never met anyone who served in the Navy who has not loved it and who has not spent hours talking about it. Many who got out early regret it.
The book flows well and familiarizes the reader about the workings of the Navy Seals. The requests the teams received in Viet Nam sometimes were to go far north to rescue pilots left me in suspense!! Tom your are one lucky Dude! Their hoisting you into the ship seemed impossible, but then nothing is impossible for a Seal. It is a fantastic book about two Medal of Honors recipients who served with the same Team.This makes this book a "gotta read". There was a difference in the Teams who served in Viet Nam and the Middle East. The difference, Viet Nam needed more Teams. Tom, I held my breath the entire time they were rescuing you. Quite a rescue!!! You are one lucky Dude.
Do you want to know the answers to these questions?
If you want to find honest, fully complete examples of the answers then read this book to see into the face of two actual, real hero?
This is a book I am proud to recommend!
