Hi, I'm Carlin Comm :)

From mind numbing boredom one moment to being absolutely scared to death the next

Life at sea is always interesting!

The men and women of the Navy's HC-5 "Providers", Detachment 4, while deployed on the T-AE-26 Kilauea, set records, got awards, and had some fun too!

Start with helicopters hovering with explosive cargo, mix in some truly lunatic fork lift drivers, maybe grab a couple hours of sleep, if you're lucky, have some great food and terrible coffee, grab your Walkman and your gas mask, we'll enjoy surreal sunsets, and oh yeah, don't forget we're in a War Zone!

Its an Adventure, just like the Navy promised!

Told from the perspective of an aircraft mechanic who was just doing his best to hold things together, you'll feel the salt spray on your face as the rotor wash threatens to blow you over the edge.

This book is dedicated to all the people back home, who wrote the letters and let us know they hadn't forgotten us.

Thanks for the mail!
