Chapter 15: About the Author
This is a fiction short story about a crew member who has to bail out of a special operations aircraft into the jungle and survives the night. All characters in this story are fictitious. Any similarity to persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental.
It was a bright, May morning as Edward Raptors awoke to the sounds of birds chirping. He had slept fitfully, but he was as rested as could be expected under the circumstances. As he sat up, he noticed he was a bit stiff. He knew it would help to get up and move around to get the kinks out of his back and legs. Edward hoped this day would be better than yesterday.
