SEAL Warrior: Death in the Dark: Vietnam 1968-1972 by Michael Prichard,Thomas H. Keith



Thomas H. Keith, Master Chief, SEAL Team 2, is living proof. He carries a piece of shrapnel behind one lung, a reminder of the day he called in 40 mm mortar fire on the enemy that was trying to catch up to his crew as the crew hauled ass out of the bush. Not only did he never report it, it was never removed--it just wasn't serious enough. SEAL Warrior is the vivid, gritty, transporting memoir of a man destined for combat, a third-generation soldier for whom serving his country was not only an honor, it was tradition. While his grandfathers fought in France, and his father's position as a . Navy Chief took him all around the world, Tom Keith fought his first war in the jungles of Vietnam.

Keith describes his team, his attitude and the lifestyle the SEALs adopted in Vietnam in compelling fashion; in fact, SEAL Warrior was the first book I've read where I could almost hear Harry's voice as I read it. I once talked to Harry about doing a memoir when all the SEAL books started hitting the market, and some limited details of his pre-Tonkin Gulf activities had begun to leak out. (In his 1992 book, Undue Process, Elliot Abrams called those operations one of our worst kept secrets. Harry looked at me and said, "First, that's classified, and I have a pension  . Thomas Keith served more than 30 years in the Teams.

The old battle tactics were useless for the . soldiers in Vietnam, who were fighting a guerrilla war on foreign soil for the first time in American history. With the depth and honesty of Steel My Soldiers' Hearts, SEAL Warrior sheds light on the operations of the SEAL teams in Vietnam and shows how the SEALs laid the foundation for the modern guerrilla warfare that is used today. It also documents how one young American survived, fought, and grew to honor and trust many who had once been his enemy.

THOMAS H. KEITH was Master Chief, SEAL Team 2, and is one of the most decorated Navy SEALs in history. He is co-author of "SEAL Warrior: Death in the Dark: Vietnam 1968-1972". J. TERRY RIEBLING's writing has appeared in several gun magazines and small presses. This testosterone-laced memoir depicts an admirable member of an elite navy SEAL unit and his service in Vietnam. Volunteering in 1963, Keith underwent the ruthless training designed to eliminate candidates lacking the ability to endure pain, exhaustion and humiliation, or sufficient luck to avoid injury. Once he deploys to Vietnam in 1968, military buffs can settle back to enjoy over 200 pages of intense, small-unit action as Keith and his comrades wreak havoc among the Vietcong and relax by engaging in adolescent horseplay.

Thomas Keith has let a record that is amazing in it's compass. The book tells his story-as much as is not classified-from a boy up til the end of the time the book was written. He is famous for a photo that I personally had seen for years without knowing who it was and what the back story was. In this book you get to learn. To say that these men were an entity of force that didn't know the meaning of the word "fail" is an understatement. Keith was one of the men that made that a piece of the mentality that make up these men. After Viet Nam Thomas went on to have a distinguished career as a Jungle expert training for the military and then working in the Middle East as a Security expert. Read this book.

SEAL Warrior was a very entertaining read. #1 Get the Book! #2: Check out the back cover and the liner information. You'll find that some very important senior ranking SEAL Team leadership folks know this man as one who was the go-to guy they preferred to deal with when reliable, effective SEAL- style action was needed "yesterday". #3: Next, check out the Forward section. It's author, Lt Michael E. Thornton, is a recipient
of the Medal of Honor. So naturally that provides some great mind-engagement focusing traction for the reader to begin the story with, then
proceed seemingly non-stop, until its solid story of life in the US Navy
SEALs is completely read through. The story takes the reader through operationally focused actions of a platoon of "East Coast SEAL Team (ST2)
of which Mr Keith was a very active TEAM oriented member. The timeframe
is when CMC Thomas Keith was himself a fully qualified, active-duty SEAL
Team operator on three straight tours of Vietnam, before he climbed all
those hard earned rungs of enlisted NCO ranks culminating in his
achieving Command Master Chief rank. A sideline awaits the reader: Accompanying the very interesting "sneak and peek" / ambush / capture /
rescue / reconnaisance /interdiction missions he was engaged in within
the unforgiving harsh environment of Vietnam, were sprinkled some of his
R&R experiences with the fairer gender half of the human species at the
various establishments he partied at, when not on duty in the deathly dark doing what he did best (SEAL missions). There were some offduty moments over there that I had no idea were part of an available agenda option! (SEALs fight hard, so I suppose it's fair that there is a "play hard" mode of entertainment available for this breed for fighting men-LOL). After the reador completes the skillfully presented "SEAL Warrior"
story, he gets a treat! Following the story, there is an excellent
glossary explaining equipment, weapons, and munitions that SEALs dealt
with "out there" on missions.

Some of the key things the reader can learn about SEALs from this story:
There is no "I" in the word TEAM;
There is no substitute for preparation before any mission;
In training, as well as when performing deadly missions, "the only easy day is yesterday!", and:
NO man is left behind!!

In sum, a very good read provided by a REAL-DEAL SEAL, and his skilled cowriter.

I bought this book because I had read via google.com that it had information on LTJG J.C. "Bubba" Brewton. I knew Bubba from the 3rd grade through college at the U. of Ala., but had lost track of him. I wanted to know more about him and just what he did in Viet Nam. Well I found out more than I had thought I would and it was very emotional for me.
This is a good book for war experience buffs. Sometimes, it was hard to put down, even for a brief period. I enjoyed it quite a bit, but found that the sexual excapades distracted from the story somewhat. But, then I guess that was a part of the story he wanted to tell. I wish the author had taken a little more time to give more background on the various key players as they appeared in the book; I think it would have added more depth to the stories. All in all, I recommend this book to people who aren't turned off by the horrors of war.

This book is insightful and interesting. It also provides historical perspective of the UDT's and their relevance to the modern day SEAL Teams. Also, the way it is written pulls you not only into the story but the Operator's mindset stem to stern.
Enlightening. Very good read.
