About the Book

"Ship Ahoy!" and "Bon Voyage!" Join the author as he takes you on a journey unlike any you may have imagined!

See what the U.S. Navy's "boot camp" was really like! Feel the frustration and joy that comes with months of constant military training, or the fear that comes with wartime duties!

Experience exotic ports of call as the author takes you to far corners of the planet-locations that most Americans can only imagine!

See the world through the eyes of a sailor or perhaps just trigger lost memories from events in your own naval history.

Let Beyond Aberdeen: A Bluejacket Diary tell you how a farm boy from Idaho gave up the life he knew for the promise of service, travel, and adventure as an electronics technician in the United States Navy! Watch as maturity, responsibility, and the legacy of a small town upbringing all work together to turn a boy into a man!
