3d Edition of Poopie Suits & Cowboy Boots Released
Ride a ‘Horse – Underwater!!
Imagine – riding a Nuclear Submarine – Day-to-Day

Books on nuclear submarines tend to focus on secret missions, intrigue, and hair-raising moments.

Poopie Suits & Cowboy Boots, by comparison, tells the true coming-of-age story of a young US Navy officer who volunteers to serve onboard a state-of-the-art nuclear submarine in the late 1960s during the height of the Cold War. The narrative follows his journey from intense training to deployment aboard the USS Seahorse (SSN-669), where he eventually earns his coveted Dolphins, the proud insignia of those who earn the distinction, “Qualified in Submarines”. Along the way, the reader will learn in highly readable detail about the inner workings of an attack submarine: sonar, buoyancy, periscope, torpedoes, nuclear power, crew organization, and a general sense of what daily life aboard such a vessel was like.

Told in a style that is easily understandable by veterans and civilians alike, Poopie Suits and Cowboy Boots covers the waterfront of human emotions: Anticipation. Uncertainty. Fear. Anger. Sadness. Traveling to destinations around the world, the book is replete with many stories—some hair-raising, some wistful, and others hilarious. Also, many of the key cultural touchstones of that era—including the space program, the Vietnam War, and even the Super Bowl—are folded into the story to give the reader a true sense of what it was like to grow up during that era.

The authors have dedicated ALL PROCEEDS from the book to the United States Submarine Veterans, Inc. (USSVI) Scholarship Fund. Since the first edition appeared in January of 2018, the total amount donated has exceeded $13,000.

At 480 pages, the 3rd Edition of Poopie Suits and Cowboy Boots is the most complete version yet. With over 100 annotated period photographs, a complete glossary that translates submarine lingo, and the benefit of informed input for all chapters by dozens of willing submarine veterans who recognized the value of this effort, this version gives the reader an unparalleled front-row seat into the day-to-day routine inside a nuclear submarine. The 3rd Edition also includes 19 new submarine historical essays, placed between chapters, to broaden the historical appeal. Read about trailing Russian nukes, conducting ‘normal’ sea ops, firing torpedoes, navigational mishaps, traveling under the polar ice cap, and visiting ports-of-call. Learn about how the food, oxygen, and water requirements were met for surviving underwater for more than 100 days in a row. And get a glimpse into the immense psychological pressures of performing such dangerous work. “Poopie Suits and Cowboy Boots” fills a niche that has been lacking in sufficient coverage for many years. Although written through one man’s eyes, this long-overdue story speaks to the experiences of every man (or woman today) who has volunteered for the nuclear submarine force. The “Silent Service”, as it is known, maintains our mighty sea defenses even today.

The book is easily ordered by going to http://www.blurb.com/b/9190021-poopie-suits-and-cowboy-boots-tales-of-a-submarine .
