I've read numerous SEAL books, beginning with Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell. All of them were excellent but this one is exceptional. It was recommended to me by my father (37-year retired Marine Mustang officer) who recently completed this book. Written from the perspective of a man who worked his way into SEAL qualification training, was accepted and made it through BUDS, taking on every challenge through Hell Week, he expanded his training to round out his versatility as a Navy SEAL officer leading others, serving in various operations with special operators of other services. Ultimately he became a SEAL instructor and his story offers special insight into this aspect of his life. The filming of "Act of Valor" was an idea he and other SEALS who were aproached by the idea were not keen on at first. But with the opportunity to do it properly, with the expertise of the film makers and the blessing of the US Navy he/they ultimately consented and play an integral role in the film which features various SEAL insertion/extraction techniques, operations and some amazingly violent firefight scenes. The film is gripping and this book is a real page-turner. Highly recommended!...Read more
This is my second Citizen Eco-Drive watch I have ordered through Amazon.com. (My old rubber strapped Seiko Arctura kinetic began losing time and stopping after many years of use. I had sent it out for repair more than once, and it likely had a failed capacitor). I purchased this Citizen Men's BV1080-18A Sport Eco-Drive Strap Watch recently to replace the Seiko. As a new offering from Citizen, no reviews were available on this watch before I ordered mine, and this is my first post ever on a product review. It is definately an attractive timepiece with its large white face; easy-to-read wide black hour and minute hands; red second hand housed in its own display and date window. Because it runs on light (ambient or artificial) it is NO maintenance. On top of that, it keeps perfect time. The silver-colored case and beige canvas strap adds to its look and comfort. I am very satisfied with both of my Citizen Eco-Drive watches....Read more
