Description

It's a fictional action/drama with some abstracts of reality, depicting the views and chronicles of an ex-Navy Seal as he comes to terms with his family obligations and his chosen life of clandestine missions for a private security firm. It begins with a soldier that joined the service in 1977 and watched the birth of terrorism as we know it today. Starting with the uprising in Iran against the Shah, it then leads into the hostage crisis that lasted 444 days. He tells a story of how he was discharged for his insubordinate actions in opposition of a group of rebels in Beirut after the Marine base was truck bombed. He gives his views on terrorism as an experienced combat soldier. He also talks about his wife, the love of his life, who is employed by the CIA. Then he explains how he got back into the black operations for the money and the action. The story follows his career as it began with a private security firm and discusses how he spent much of his time consulting the United States government on terrorism. As his company calls upon him by request of his former commanding officer, a Navy Admiral he befriended years before.He is asked to run a black ops mission to rescue a high profile person who has been kidnapped by a Middle Eastern terrorist group during a peace mission in Iraq. He examines the terrorists' behaviors and their incentives for violence, and voices his own opinions and explanations of their actions. During his missions, he references the past wars the world has fought. Then he explains the good and bad points that have come from these wars with a patriotic and a soldier's view. He also discuses his conflicts as a family man and a covert soldier that has kept him from being a good father and husband at times.
