I picked this book because I had read a lot about the damage Ames did to our efforts to gather information about the KGB and GRU and their attempts to steal secrets from the U.S.

CONQUERING TIDE by Ian Toll - it is about WWII in the Pacific. Toll looks at the battles from Guadalcanal to Saipan from sides from a command perspective. This book was selected because I am a history book and a fan of Ian. He, along with Jim Hornfischer and Rick Atkinson are three of the best of the new generation of writers of military history.

THE FLEET AT FLOOD TIDE - the U.S. Navy in 1944-1945 - the book focuses on the Marianas campaign and the events that it triggered. See reason for picking CONQUERING TIDE.

SHATTERED SWORD by Jonathan Parshall. Actually, I am re-reading this book about the Battle of Midway because it is the 75th anniversary of this epic battle. It looks at the operational doctrine of both the U.S. and Japanese navies and how this explained their tactics and decision making. It is an easy, fascinating read.

EYES OVER AFGHANISTAN by Matt Vernon - the book is about Matt's experience as a Naval Aviator and helicopter pilot sent to Afghanistan to train pilots in the Afghani Air Force.

Under the Verrazano Bridge

One sunny summer afternoon, I was the aircraft commander and had a helicopter and four and a half hours of fuel to burn. We, i.e. the crew, needed to log flight time to ensure we reached the minimum of 110 hours per year. For the record, 120 was desired and 140 hours was the real number.


Our SH-3A didn’t have an operating sonar so we couldn’t go out into the Atlantic and practice dipping, i.e. lowe
