In 1966 Harry Constance became a member of the newly formed U.S. Navy SEAL Team Two. By 1970 he was a veteran of three hundred combat missions in Vietnam, had captured almost two hundred enemy prisoners, and had received thirty-two citations, including three Bronze Stars and a Purple Heart. In Good to Go, Constance powerfully recounts his experience during three tours in Vietnam as a member of SEAL Team Two, Seventh Platoon. Known as fierce warriors with amazing stealth and skill in battle, the SEALs are an elite force trained to fight on SEa, Air, and Land with sophisticated special operations warfare tactics. From the floodplains of the Mekong Delta to the beaches of the South China Sea, Good to Go takes readers on Constance's harrowing missions, along trails crisscrossed by trip wires and through dense jungles booby-trapped with live grenades. Each special op is dramatic. The Seventh Platoon sets up ambushes, infiltrates Viet Cong territory, performs daring nighttime attacks, targets the location of high-level VC officials, and narrowly escapes enemy fire. Constance gives an extraordinary account of the Tet offensive, which his platoon fought from a hotel in My Tho. But in recounting the ferocious battle of Tet, Constance shows why SEAL humor and bravado always won the day. After Constance leaves Vietnam, Good to Go follows him as he plays a key role in the expansion of the SEAL program. His duty training recruits for undercover clandestine ops and going on dangerous assignments around the globe - in South America hot spots and onboard nuclear submarines - reflects his inspiring dedication to the SEALs.
