I'm pleased to introduce a new writer, Jerry Pait, and his co-writer Robert Williscroft. Both men served our country courageously and have important stories to share. I've just pre-ordered my Kindle copy of Sŭbmarine-Ër: 30 Years of Hijinks & Keeping the Fleet Afloat . I'm very much looking forward to the read. The current price is .99cents but on September 15, the release date, the price rises to $3.99.
Here's a bit about Jerry and his new book:
Jerry took a senior field position with the major defense contractor Brown & Root, but during his first year, he fell from 20 feet in a way that fractured his back and cracked his skull. He survived and has struggled ever since to regain as much function as possible.
Jerry’s book, Sŭbmarine-Ër: 30 Years of Hijinks & Keeping the Fleet Afloat, will be released on September 15, exactly 58 years after he enlisted.
Lieutenant Commander Jerry Pait’s semi-autobiographical collection of sixty stories recounts his thirty years in and around the U.S. Navy’s submarine fleet. Ranging from light-hearted to wrenching, all are poignant inside looks at naval operations rarely seen by outsiders. Topics include the real story behind the shuttle Challenger tragedy, risking his own life underwater, discovering a Soviet spy living across the street, surviving when a DELTA Rocket engine ignites, critical missions, and the everyday lives of men and women of the fleet. Dive into Sŭbmarine-Ër for hijinks and breathtaking adventure with this poignant memoir by a true American hero.
