Where does a man's strength originate? In 1991, during the short, brutal air war above Iraq, two men unknowingly discover the same answer during an intense CSAR (Combat Search And Rescue) operation.
A short story, "Romeo Down" is an account of the action resulting in the award of Daniel Sean Ritter's first Silver Star. Alluded to in dialogue within the first novel of "Sean's File," "Operation Naji," this episode stands alone as a spoiler-free companion volume to that title.

About the Author
Dale Amidei lives and writes on the wind- and snow-swept Northern Plains of South Dakota. Novels about people and the perspectives that guide their decisions are the result. They feature faith-based themes set in the real world, which is occasionally profane or violent. His characters are realistically portrayed as caught between heaven and earth, not always what they should be, nor what they used to be. In this way they are like all of us.
Dale Amidei's fiction can entertain you, make you think, and touch your heart. His method is simple: have something to say, then start writing. His novels certainly reflect this philosophy.
