9780984577774: Those '67 Blues

Those ’67 Blues, is an enlightening action novel of U.S. naval aviators flying combat missions from an attack aircraft carrier on Yankee Station in the Tonkin Gulf during the Vietnam War. This day-by-day account of flight operations, and the heroic actions of men penetrating the hostile skies of well-defended North Vietnam, spans a two-week period during the angry autumn of 1967. Feel the tension of flying a combat attack mission from the cockpit of an A-6 Intruder as, low and alone in the dark, you home in on a target. Understand the stomach-tightening dread as a surface-to-air missile tracks its target—you. Live the fear of being shot down, hunted, and held prisoner by the North Vietnamese. Experience the shivering adrenalin release that comes hours after a harrowing mission. Meanwhile, the aviator’s wives and children back home live through fears and problems of their own, during a war that few people understand, and many despise.

About the Author:

B.K. Bryans was a teenage cowboy on two southern Arizona ranches before he became the young horse wrangler for a film company shooting western movies for television at the Old Tucson movie set. After two years at the University of Arizona, he entered the Naval Aviation Cadet Program in Pensacola, Florida, and became a carrier-qualified jet pilot at age twenty. As a naval aviator, Brian flew 3,669 hours in thirteen different types of aircraft, made 652 carrier landings (163 of them at night), and flew 183 combat missions in A-6 Intruders during the Vietnam War. He was awarded the Silver Star, the Distinguished Flying Cross, and thirteen Air Medals. He went on to command Attack Squadron Thirty-Five (VA-35) aboard USS Nimitz. While in the Navy, Brian earned a B.A. in Mathematics and an M.S. in Operations Research & Systems Analysis. Besides his flying tours, Brian served as aide to the Senior Member of the United Nations Armistice Commission in Korea, aide to the Commander of the U.S. Seventh Fleet, and Chief of Special Studies for the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He retired from the U.S. Navy as a captain. Brian then worked as a consultant and software developer before serving as a manager with the Arizona state government. He is now retired and resides in Tuscon, Arizona with his wife Pat.
