Publisher's Summary

David Burnett takes listeners into a unique world of the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment. His journey starts in a conventional army unit where he feels unfulfilled. This lack of fulfillment drives David to pursue his dream of becoming an MH-47G Chinook helicopter crew chief in the best and most secretive aviation unit in the world.

David is met with constant hurdles and set backs trying to achieve his ultimate goal, but he is more determined than ever. After graduating from the unit's five-week selection process, he is thrown into school after school and nonstop training before being able to step foot on the aircraft he so desperately dreams of crewing on. After almost a year in the Special Operations Unit, he is trained and ready to deploy with the 160th, and it is nothing short of intense. 

He quickly learns that his new unit's mission op tempo is exactly what he had hoped. He is eager to prove himself among the ranks and continues to hone his craft over the next four years. After five deployments with the unit as a crew chief, he is discharged from the military. After leaving the fast paced world of the SOF community, he falls into a deep depression. Alcohol becomes the new most important thing, and he finds himself in a new and reckless battlefield. He never saw this coming.

Authentic accounts

From the smallest details of where things were positioned on a compound, to the description about some of the individuals listed in the book, every account is 100%.

Often times, trying to explain certain tasks to someone who hasn’t been there or done that can be difficult to articulate. You have done an amazing job doing just that!!!!

You bring honor to the regiment and Aco.

A long but good listen

An awesome story that makes me wish I could try out for 160th.
After listening to this story I feel the moto should be both Night Stalkers Don't Quite as well as Night Stalkers Don't Wave.
Nothing but the most respect for these heroes and what they do.

Night Stalkers Don't Quit!

Really candid book by Burnett about the ups and downs of becoming a special operations Chinook crew chief in the 160th SOAR and how it changed his life. SERE school sounds like a nightmare!
