USS BUNKER HILL

April 24, 2015

With the help of the good folks at Viking, I was able to send signed copies of my latest to the officers of the USS BUNKER HILL, a 567-foot CG 52 currently in the Middle East.  Here I’m holding a copy of my book that was signed by all the officers.  Underneath the book is a U.S. flag that was flown in my honor on Feb. 17, 2015 in the Arabian Gulf.  Needless to say, I am humbled and greatly gratified that Captain Sterling Dawley and his officers enjoyed BUNKER HILL.
