Publisher Comments:

So Others May Live is the untold story of the U.S. Coast Guards quiet but resolute rescue swimmers. From deep ocean caves on the Oregon coast to the panicked and chaotic streets of post-Katrina New Orleans, here are their stunningly heroic stories.

These stories are some of the greatest maritime rescues attempted since the program began in 1985. These feats, told through the eyes of the heroes, reveal an understanding of how and why the rescuer, with flight crew assistance, risks his or her own life to reach out to save a stranger. The book covers diverse environments: oceans, hurricanes, oil rigs, caves, sinking vessels, floods, and even Niagara Falls. It is truly a cant-put-it-down collection.

Synopsis:

Dramatic compelling downright unbelievable accounts of the Coast Guards often unsung heros
