During my time working for an international medical relief organization, I met a doctor with an intriguing story.
The doctor had given up a good career in the ER to provide humanitarian aid in some of the world's most dangerous places. He told me some chilling stories. Once in Iraq, masked men ambushed his convoy and held him at gunpoint while they stole his supplies. And while living in Kashmir, he nearly lost his wife and young child to a life-threatening illness. Thankfully, they lived.
But there was something else, a clandestine side to his work so controversial and dangerous that it couldn't be discussed openly. As he told me about it, I realized that was the true mission; the real reason he lived and worked in such dangerous places.
If exposed, he'd be arrested. In some countries, the offense was punishable by death. But he did it willingly. With passion. And that work is being done right now by a small number of determined people, like him, all over the Middle East, North Africa, and Asia.
That's what this story is about.
The clandestine work.

Jordan Hunter (Matador) counted 5 other chutes: Fullback, Tao, Trigger,
Schlitz, & Locke. The team was fighting the War on Terror. The grenade had blown up some combatants. Robert Gutierrez radioed Matador. Colonel Abdullah Al Saccar was expecting the team. The team searched the dead enemies. The chopper climbed & dumped off part of the team.
Cool book cover, great font & writing style. A fairly well written thrilling exciting war short story (book). Not always easy to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. Quite a few twists/turns. No grammar errors, repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of interesting scenarios & a great set of unique characters. Could make a Great War movie or TV series. A very easy rating of 5 stars.
Thank you for the free short story (book)
