Product description

Product Description

There’s an old saying that the difference between a fairy tale and a sea story is that a fairy tale starts off with “Once upon a time” and a sea story starts off with “This is no shit.”

Here in these pages is a heaping pile of “no shit,” starting with the notion that in the Navy, the cardinal rule is that if you can’t pay attention, take notes.

When does this rule apply? In the Navy, it’s all the time: when training for war includes playing pinochle, when the you’re mistaken for an NIS agent, when Robert Mitchum (yes, that Robert Mitchum) stops by for a beer, when advancing in the Navy is one damn thing after another.

This fun frolic through the sea stories of a Navy “lifer” – seen partly through the eyes of his Navy brat daughter – includes an series of adventures and misadventures: commandeering an Army jeep in Vietnam, discovering some side work in New Jersey was mob-related, and commuting to the ship via helicopter.

Hear that? They’re piping us aboard. Let’s weigh anchor and get underway!
