The Three Phases of George Worthington’s Memoir: What’s Inside the Navy and How Disciplined Were the Sections of Training Conducted?

“When asked what I am most proud of, I stick out my chest, hold my head high and state proudly, I served in the United States Navy!”— Former US President John F. Kennedy.

A fascinating personal account of George R Worthington’s challenging military life was published, an autobiography book titled, Runnin’ with Frogs: A Navy Memoir. This book is an autobiographical sketch of a Naval career, highlighting challenging assignments during a booster era in America. Details of deployments and special events of international and national moments associated with operational and command tours were described. Actions, decisions, and personal learning impacts are directly discussed with in-depth descriptions of special training. The memoir has three phases: which include the early years, active duty in the
U.S. Navy, and the rest of it. “The voice is open and honest about how he felt at the various stages of his life, even offering advice that includes keeping a good attitude and listening to everybody. Every chapter is a
genuine insight into the Naval world that features rare explorations such as a fascinating look at the Marine Mammal Program where sea mammals had their special roles under the eye of the SEALS.”— Liz Konkel, Pacific Book Review.

“This is a book for anyone who enjoys stories of military life, memoirs from real-life servicemen and specifically Navy admirals, and memoirs in general. The stories told within this book are vast and detailed, and explore many facets of American history.”— Anthony Avina, Hollywood Book Reviews.

“Extremely relatable and personal autobiographical look into the life of the world’s elite S.E.A.L.S. before they were famous, during their rise and after. Awesome read.” — Graham Worthington, Amazon customer review.
