Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
This story is a brilliantly strategic, empathetically driven, and timely account of the life of Brett Jones, the first openly gay Navy SEAL.
He is reverent to conservative values as a homosexual navigating the changes of current social instability in America. He effectively grabs the attention of a readership spanning a broad spectrum of political and social perspectives, and demands the revaluation of mainstream American norms regarding the acceptance and placement of homosexuals in society, work, and national narratives.
The pages bring you face to face with the author, through unbelievable emotional and physical investments on his road to military inclusion.
The honesty and deeply felt comradery paired with his humanistic love and understanding for an organization that threatened to abandon and discredit him will win hearts.
Brett Jones's book comes at a perfect time in our history. His story serves as a missing link that helps bridge the ever-growing popularity of gay marriage and traditional values.
About the author:
Born into a military family, Brett Jones spent his early life travelling around the world, living in the shadows of the Iron Curtain, the Korean Demilitarized Zone, and the Pyramids of Egypt.
He defied great odds to fulfill his dream of becoming a Navy SEAL, and served for almost a decade in the Navy. He served in two harrowing six-month deployments with SEAL Team 8, later becoming a plank owner of SEAL Team 10.
Brett received numerous awards and commendations during his Navy tenure, but was forced out of the closet, becoming the first openly gay Navy SEAL on active duty. After his honorable discharge in 2003, he continued his fight in the war against terror as a security contractor.
Brett currently resides in northern Alabama with his husband, former police sergeant Jason White, and their son. Together they founded and operate Riley Security, which continually raises the bar on private security in Alabama through its groundbreaking training program, exceptional hiring processes, and tireless dedication to their customers.

I came upon this book from my Kindle purchases of post-apocalyptic/zombie fiction writers who are military. I've read a few military stories over the years, from British SAS stories, Vietnam battles, and Marcus Luttrell and Chris Kyle. This is definitely worth the Kindle price and your time.
This book is about survival. Of many things. As a fellow survivor, I felt moved and encouraged by this man's story. He writes eloquently, but ignore the few typos and grammatical errors. He has a real gift for straight-forward recall of past experiences and makes the military experience, which I thought would bore me, fascinating. He has overcome many things, and as a fellow survivor, I deeply connected to the story. I would highly recommend this book to everyone. It might be the first gay Navy Seal, but it's so much more than that.
