We used to have two sayings in BUD/S (Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL) training that goes, “It pays to be a winner…”, and “It’s easier to keep up than catch up…”.
These were lessons I learned the hard way in the “Goon” squad of first phase. This squad was where the slowest, special case, runners went after a six-mile conditioning run; so, while everyone else stretched and drank water, me and the rest of my miserable company where getting “extra” conditioning, sometimes it involved big logs.

So here we are, only one month away from the release of what I consider my best work ever, Among Heroes, and special thanks to my writing partner John Mann for prying it out of me and it still pays to be a winner, if you want a signed copy.
