According to the book description
of When the Bullet Hits Your Funny Bone: The Essence of A U.S. Navy Seal,
it is a collection of true events about the author's time in U.S. Navy
SEAL Teams and how SEALs use their humor to cope with all sorts of tragic events
that they experience in their professional careers. This book offers the reader
a personal glimpse into the minds of America's most elite warriors. The stories
explain how SEALs bond with each other to become brothers-in-arms through their
difficult training and tactical missions. This book also explains why SEALs use
extreme humor, on themselves and others, in order to cope with a job that places
these professional warriors face to face with death on almost a daily basis.
There are are those who say that it is not logical to run into the face of
danger, perhaps that explains why most people think that SEALs are crazy. We
prefer to look danger in the eye and not run from it, perhaps this also explains
why there are not so many of us. When The Bullet Hits Your Funny Bone takes the
reader on an emotional roller-coaster ride of tragedy and laughter, giving the
reader a complete inner circle view into the professional and personal lives of
America's most elite warriors.
