C. G. Cooper: Welcome to Books in 30 with me C. G. Cooper also known as Carlos Cooper. Here at Books in 30, we discuss great books with great authors. So, welcome to our listeners and a big Books in 30 welcome to today's guest, Andrew Watts. Andrew, welcome. How you doing?
Andrew Watts: Thank you. Good to be here.
C. G. Cooper: Well, this is this is all about you and all about books so let me read a quick intro of who you are. Andrew graduated from The United States Naval Academy in 2003, I won't give him too much of a hard time about that. He served as a naval officer and helicopter pilot until 2013. During that time, he flew counter narcotic missions in the eastern Pacific and counter piracy missions off the Horn of Africa. He was a flight instructor in Pensacola, Florida, and helped to run ship and flight operations while embarked on a nuclear aircraft carrier deployed in the Middle East. Today, he lives with his family in Ohio. And we will talk a little bit more about where to find him at the end. One thing I want to talk about really quickly. You gave me a couple little tidbits on things that are interesting about you and the one that I really want to hear about is that you flew your helicopter 50 feet over Captain Phillips while he was being held hostage by Somali pirates. Tell us about that....
