And didn't the Somali pirates want 2 million?
Wonder what the pirates back at the cove watering hole are thinking about that?
Prolly are going to go back to Nigerian prince email scams.

From what I understand he risked his own life for the lives of his crew... that, and the hostage situation and subsequent rescue by Navy Seal's... sounds worthy of a book to me...

It's even more spectacular to me that they were shooting from a boat to another boat... one shot is great, three at the same time?

There are shows on the Military Channel that re-enact SEAL and some Ranger Ops. My older son watches them all the time trying to get ready for when he joins up.

He wants to follow in Daddy's footsteps and go Special Ops (1st SFOD, Delta) but I think he is leaning towards SEAL Training. My daughter is in the Navy in San Diego and a couple of times we got to watch the SEALS Hell Week training from a distance.

Those guys are very tough, even the ones that wash out....

Wow.
How cool is that?!

One of my office managers is former Force Recon. I have no major problems with collections, because the man just knows how to work people. Not physically mind you, just really good at getting what we want.

My grandpa was in the CBI WWII with Merrill's Marauders, was screened by OSS 101. Wish he would have talked more about his service. Never said much.


As to the OP....heck, I'd probably read that book. Paperback.
