THE ONLY EASY DAY WAS YESTERDAY is the unofficial motto of the United States Navy SEAL’s. This story is fiction but it is built on a foundation of fact. It is the story of Ashley Morgan Jamison and how she earned the Navy SEAL Triton and became the first woman in American History to earn the right to be called a Navy SEAL. Navy SEAL’s are not born that way. They work hard to develop the physical strength to make it happen, and they must have a mindset that allows them to be mentally tough. Ashley is challenged at each stage of her life, but she meets all challenges with a mental toughness that very few possess. This is a story that just doesn’t happen overnight. It is a story that is developed over 23 years of a woman’s life. Every year presents a new challenge and Ashley thrives on challenges. Ashley’s story is fiction but it is not far from reality. Women are now allowed to apply to become United States Navy SEAL’s but they must pass every test that men must pass. There are no qualification differences. Some women have tried but as of this writing no woman has yet to succeed. It is my hope that somewhere, sometime a woman will read this story and based on Ashley’s experiences the reader will learn, apply and succeed in pulling off something that no woman has yet to accomplish. I would like nothing better than to see this fiction story become a reality.

During the Vietnam era, many of the U.S. Navy SEALs (SEa, Air, Land commandos) never filed for a Purple Heart unless they were severely wounded. Thomas H. Keith, Master Chief, SEAL Team 2, is living proof. He carries a piece of shrapnel behind one lung, a reminder of the day he called in 40 mm mortar fire on the enemy that was trying to catch up to his crew as the crew hauled ass out of the bush. Not only did he never report it, it was never removed---it just wasn't serious enough. SEAL Warrior is the vivid, gritty, transporting memoir of a man destined for combat, a third-generation soldier for whom serving his country was not only an honor, it was tradition. While his grandfathers fought in France, and his father's position as a U.S. Navy Chief took him all around the world, Tom Keith fought his first war in the jungles of Vietnam. Fighting a guerilla war on foreign soil for the first time in American history, the SEALS found that there were no front lines; the enemy was an integral part of the entire society. This atypical form of warfare demanded that new tactics, new strategic applications of force, and a new understanding of a complex social and cultural enmity be found. SEAL Warrior goes beyond the horror and bravado of battle to offer a deeper insight into the ways in which the SEALs fought, learned, reacted, and expanded their understanding of guerilla warfare during the Vietnam War. It's also a personal, riveting account of how one young American survived, and, over time, grew to trust and revere many of those who once had been his enemy. With America again deeply involved in guerilla warfare, there is no better time to honor the unique abilities, understanding, and courage of these warriors who sacrificed it all to fight for nothing less than peace.

With a local running interference for them, enlarging of the mines began. The drug distribution plan began to gel, tons of drugs were stockpiled for the day the Mines were open. Semi loads of drugs would be unloaded at night into the mines, then smaller trucks would later carry drugs to distribution points throughout the State. It seemed secure, but there were unforseen problems. The Local working with them had his own agenda, this would become apparent before long. Then there was the local Sheriff, a native of the area who had spent years with the SEALS and NCIS. He was no fool, and many of his men were skilled, Army Rangers in the Reserves. The potential for disaster was great, all it would take was one spark to ignite the flames. Added to this mix, a wealthy Environmentalist, and several bright young women who were involved with the Sheriff and his men. The possibility for armed conflict was high. Cartel AK-47s would be answered by M-16s of the DEA and local deputies, military veterans all.

This is the story of a technological war. There was no ambiguity behind the phrase “mutually assured destruction”?nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them had become a reality. The atomic bomb brought Japan to the USS Missouri for the formal surrender on September 2, 1945; a date that marked the end of World War Two. But this date also signaled the beginning of the Cold War as the Soviet Union emerged from the shadows. There was no “shot heard ‘round the world”; no Fort Sumter; no Pearl Harbor; only the threat of a mushroom cloud far worse than what Japan experienced. The Cold War remained cold because all the players aggressively pursued a strategy of deterrence aimed at keeping the opponent’s finger off the trigger. The people on the front lines and behind the scenes?the Cold Warriors on both sides?would come from the civilians who created the technology and the military that would be entrusted with its use. When tensions escalated, it was the Navy and the “silent service” that played a critical role. In Cold Warriors, the author describes a Navy laboratory in New London, Connecticut, populated with pioneers in submarine and antisubmarine warfare technology. Their mandate was to take the intellectual risks that would keep this country one step ahead of the Soviet Union. But ideas alone would not win the Cold War. The scientists relied on teams of field engineers whose willingness to take on physical risk would convert theory into reality. One of these groups was simply known as “the divers.” Beginning in the 1950s, the U.S. Navy Underwater Sound Laboratory began sending a small number of its civilian staff?one or two each year?to train at one of the Navy’s diving schools. As the Laboratory in New London evolved into the Naval Undersea Warfare Center, Newport, Rhode Island, that small team became the Engineering and Diving Support Unit. For more than a half-century, “the divers” would travel the world?this book is their story.

Jerry Mitchell is on exercises off the coast of Pakistan when his submarine, the USS Michigan, is ordered to a rendezvous off the Iranian coast. Once there, disembarked SEALs---experts in seaborne commando operations---are to extract two Iranian nationals who have sensitive information on Iran's nuclear weapons program. While en route to shore, Michigan's mini-sub suffers a battery fire, killing one crew member and forcing the survivors---four SEALs and LCDR Mitchell---to scuttle their disabled craft and swim for shore. There they find the two Iranians waiting for them, but their attempts at returning to Michigan are thwarted by heavy Iranian patrol boat activity.

When Mitchell and his men find themselves surrounded by Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corp troops, they create a bold plan to escape by sea.
