    Eyes On Target

    in Politics Conservative

    Five years into the Obama Administration, political correctness is affecting the Navy SEALs, the world’s most elite commando unit, with a record number of retirements from the field and political comment by the President and Vice President sapping morale. New York Times best-selling authors Richard Miniter and Scott McEwen’s new book, Eyes on Target (Center Street/Hachette Book Group, March 2014) captures the history and formation of the elite Navy SEALS and is the very first book to paint the entire SEAL unit as a whole character, a band of brotherhood for life.  Based on extensive interviews of a number of current, former, and fallen SEALS, Miniter and McEwen explore the inside, never-before reported accounts of the unforgettable, riveting and thrilling adventures experienced by the heroic and the politics that too often get in the way.
