Synopsis: Chet Bright faced the prospect of death on the water many times – during World War II, Korea and Vietnam – but in the end the sea was his savior. The son of a West Texas cowboy, he ran away at seventeen to join the military after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. Aboard a destroyer during World War II, as a frogman with the Navy's elite Underwater Demolition Teams in Korea and later as an Explosive Ordnance Disposal expert, Bright found himself anchored to life on the water. It thrilled him and it scarred him, but he could not untether himself from the adventure it promised. Bluejacket is the story of those adventures, from his time at war to his post-military years sailing the Caribbean in a boat built from a shell in his back yard. He gave his life to the sea. In return, it gave him these memories.

About the Author: Chet Bright is a retired senior chief petty officer and a veteran of World War II and the Korean War, where he was a member of the Navy's elite Underwater Demolition Teams. He is a former instructor at the Navy's Explosive Ordnance Disposal School and served in Vietnam with the National Oceanographic Office. In retirement, he captained the Peace & Plenty for nearly 40 years. He lives in Stuart, Florida. Derek Turner is the Washington Bureau Chief for Stars and Stripes, the independent newspaper serving the U.S. military around the world. He lives in La Plata, Maryland.
