In 1951, one year into the Korean War, the Navy sent Ensign Jack Russ to a destroyer-escort serving in the war zone. Later, Jack went on to fly as a carrier jet pilot, including combat action in the Vietnam War. He retired from the Navy as a Captain after thirty years, four commands, and multiple medals and awards. Following Navy retirement, Jack joined the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, where he was a Human Resources Manager and Assistant Associate Director for computation. He formed a consulting firm after retirement from the Laboratory, and began to return to his love of writing in his free time.
The result of this decision is Jack’s debut novel, In Dangerous Waters. Drawing upon his experiences in the Korean War, the novel is an exciting tale of tension, danger, and intrigue that presents a new perspective on the men who waged the war.
