The DoD has hired a retired SEAL to test and evaluate physical security arrangements; he abducts the wife of the commander of an Army post. Harm, a schoolmate from the Naval Academy, seeks to persuade him to ease up a bit. The admiral in charge of the program assigns one more operation to the consultant, who then, on his own, captures a nuclear attack submarine, mans her, gets her underway, and takes her to sea. Bud serves as the officially assigned lawyer observer for each of those two adventures. Eventually the bad guy unsuccessfully tries to kidnap the wife of the same admiral. Gunny encounters a bit of resistance and resentment, and Lt. Loren Singer arrives at the office. Written by DocRushing

Did You Know?


The fictional submarine here is USS San Pedro (USS-780). No such ship exists in the real world of the US Navy. The real USS San Pedro (PF-37) was a patrol frigate of the Tacoma class, which served 1943-45; she also served in the Soviet Navy (1945-49) and the Japanese Maritime Self-defense Force (1953-78). The real SSN-780 is USS Missouri, a nuclear attack submarine of the Virginia class, which has served since 2010. See more »


The argument about the location of the classified material trash can is a moot point. Classified material is NEVER stored in an open trash can. It must places in a properly secured container (i.e. safe) and then properly destroyed. See more »
