Recommends it for: Anyone interested in military service.
Recommended to Richard by: a friend.
I have been into stories by people in the military. Usually it is navy seals, but I thought I would try it. There is no combat story here. I do like the behind the curtain stories of things you don't normally hear about. I have never read about the physical for entering the service, or what life on a ship was like.

Quite curious about navy life, and looking for information about its unofficial stories and nuances, I picked this read. I have to say, I fully enjoyed the experience because it provided what I was looking for; details of the underbelly of how things work (worked) in the navy.

I did not pick this book for entertainment, but was tolerantly entertained regardless. I consider that a bonus on top of the wealth of information I received from this installment.

(To the author) Thank you kindly for sharin

This book resonates

Senior Chief Bishop recounts his own career spanning twenty two years. You can almost smell the salt air and taste the coffee in the chief's mess. As a former sailor, his boot camp days clicked with me. Good job Senior Chief! I can't wait for your next book.
