Book Hour: Navy SEALS – Their Untold Story


Author Dick Couch is a former Navy SEAL and has written stories from the history of the SEALS. The stories from World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Grenada, Iraq, and others will amaze you. You’ll wonder how men only armed with swimsuits, a knife, and a few simple tools could have changed the outcomes from so many wars and conflicts. Listen to these stories and the men who served as SEALS. Listen how their training and courage inspire their success. A telling story comes from Jessica Buchanan whom the SEALS rescued in Somalia, “[The SEALS] were heart-breakingly polite. They made special efforts to be kind, these athletic hunter-killers who had just taken out a camp of armed men”. She lamented she couldn’t thank them, “[The SEALS] just vanished. They came out of the darkness and disappeared back into it. I mean, it’s incredible.” Hear more of these these stories. This book was the basis of a recent PBS series.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
