On the back of the book it reads, 

"This book is a must. Read the true personal stories of the survivors. Nothing has been added. Nothing has been left out. You will cry, laugh, shake your head and wonder why the Navy didn't look for us. All gave some, some gave all. How blessed we are to be able to adapt, learn and grow from our experiences."
