Special Operations Warrior Foundation

The Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF) began in 1980 as the Col. Arthur D. "Bull" Simons Scholarship Fund. The Bull Simons Fund was created following the Iranian hostage rescue attempt, to provide college educations for the 17 children who survived the nine men killed or incapacitated at Desert One. It was named in honor of the legendary Army Green Beret Bull Simons, who repeatedly risked his life on rescue missions.

Following creation of the United States Special Operations Command, and as casualties mounted from actions such as Operations "Urgent Fury" (Grenada), "Just Cause" (Panama), "Desert Storm" (Kuwait and Iraq), and "Restore Hope" (Somalia), the Bull Simons Fund gradually expanded its outreach program to encompass all Special Operations Forces.

Description

"One of the best sea stories I’ve read…it’s a real page turner... found difficult to put down." --The Champ, USS Lake Champlain Association 2006

In this fictional account, Dan Keough takes you aboard an American destroyer…a haunted worn-out relic that should have gone to the ship breakers in 1945 rather than being thrust once more into the breach of another war. The crews, like the ship, are retreads... reservists who would rather be anywhere but in the Sea of Japan participating in Harry Truman's "police action."

This is a tale of combat afloat and wild and wacky liberties ashore. And it is the story of the women left behind…faithful navy wives and those who believe in that old expression, "out of sight, out of mind."

About the Author

Dan Keough is well known throughout the New York maritime and air transport communities where for fifteen years he was Editor of the Port Authority’s monthly international commerce magazine. He also served two two-year terms as an international trade advisor to the Dean of New Jersey’s Middlesex College. The author went to sea at the age of seventeen and his naval experience range from “showing the flag” in the scorching harbor of the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf to dodging icebergs at the bottom of Cape Horn. Military decorations for this Korean War service include a South Korean Presidential Unit Citation and the Navy Combat-Action ribbon. Commissioned from the ranks, he is able to present this narrative from the perspective of both the navy’s enlisted personnel and its Office Corps.
