Admiral Poindexter makes a discrete request of his old friend, U.S. Senator William Andrews. The Admiral is being blackmailed and he needs professional help save a life! Andrews turns the request over to his son, homicide detective Preston Andrews. To save the life of an undercover CIA agent in the Middle East, Press goes to Afghanistan to enlist the aid of his own best friend, Lieutenant Commander James Harticutt, of SEAL Team Six. Press has to find the agent quickly, before her cover is blown.
The helicopter crash that killed 25 U.S. Special Operations members and five crewmen in Afghanistan on August 6 has left their families heartbroken and leaning on the tight-knit military community.
Of the fallen, 17 were Navy SEALS, five belonged to a Navy Special Warfare unit, five were from the army and three served in the Air Force. All but two of the SEALs were from SEAL Team Six, the unit that killed Osama bin Laden in Pakistan in May. According to the Associated Press, none of the servicemen killed took part in the mission.
As loved ones grieve, the Navy SEAL Foundation offers up support by providing families with funding for memorial services, scholarships for children and spouses and assistance with other financial needs.
