    Riveting stories of heroism and bravery!
    I spent the summer reading quite a bit and REALLY enjoyed "So Others May Live"!! Half the time I found myself holding my breath reading the stories wondering when my heart rate would drop back to normal. The striking thing amongst all of the stories is the humility that each swimmer displayed by looking at their actions as just another day performing "their jobs". That these stories are only just a small sampling of the past, present, and future exploits of these extraordinary individuals is truly amazing. I also thought the last chapter, dedicated to those who didn't come back, was an extremely classy way to highlight the danger and real human sacrifice that these unsung heroes have made in the interest of saving the lives of complete strangers. A tip of the hat to these incredible Coast Guard heroes. Semper Paratus!

    good book

    this is a great. rescue swimmers are great individuals. i know this because i know a lot of them. they do incredible things and not get some kind of praise for it. but, i was a little disappointed because like the rescue swimmers, flight mechanics, the crewmembers who does the hoisting up and down the helicopter are not getting the thanks that they deserve, too. everybody aboard that helicopter work as a team and should be praised as a team. wihout the skills of the pilot, flying would be hard. without the flight mechanics, hoisting the rescue swimmers and the victims back up to the helicopters would not be possible, or when the choppers break down they are the ones who fix it. without the rescue swimmers, water rescue would not be possible. i know thay do a lot of work, but, they are not the only people who are working. maybe, i am biased because my significant other is a flight mechanic, but i really do think the crew should be praised equally. its great they made a movie about the rescue swimmers, i love that movie, but how often did they show flight mechs do their jobs and got praised for it. i have not seen a book about flight mechanics yet, maybe some of you know of one. let me know.
