Another book written by a Navy SEAL will contribute to meeting a clamor for books about or by Navy SEALs, with the release of “Battle on the Homefront.”
The newly-released book is by Navy SEAL Carl Higbie, who was admitted into the Navy SEAL training team in 2002. He has since served two combat deployments to the Middle East, as well as other locations around the world. At present, he is a Navy SEAL instructor, and is the owner of Tarzan Tree Service in Virginia Beach.
“Battle on the Homefront” is Higbie’s first book, and is based on his military service, as well as his love for his country. Higbie wrote: “We’ve all heard ‘…of the people, by the people and for the people’ but whatever happened to ‘we, the people…’ We used to be unified under one banner that read ‘the land of the free and the home of the brave,’ but it seems while everyone is abusing their freedoms, they have forgotten the brave that made those freedoms possible, including some of our leaders in the military.”
The chapters of the book include Higbie’s perceptions on: “Government, Laws and Loopholes,” “Idealism versus Realism,” and “Entitlement.”
Higbie is taking a personal leave from active duty as a U.S. Navy SEAL instructor from April 24-29 in order to promote the national launch of the book, which has been set in New York City.
Higbie wrote further: “One of the root problems with America’s progressively collapsing society and struggling economy is the large number of people who feel the government owes them something. I’ve read the Constitution and I can tell you America owes you nothing — it’s already paid the price.”
