Retired USAF Medic. Medical descriptions of medical equipment and in field procedures were well described and appeared to be based on current techniques. The high demands of special ops personnel ,and the physical and mental toll exacted on themselves and their family members are understood by few, outside of their community. Hopefully civilian readers of this book will garner a better understanding and appreciation of how these elite troops contribute so much to our (and other) nation's security. A great read with detailed descriptions of operational particulars that makes it obvious that input came from some of the "real "McCoy's" currently, or formally involved in this "area of expertise".
