I would like to congratulate newly-published Captain John B. Mitchell, Jr., US (Ret.) author of Seven Ships.

Seven Ships recounts Mitchell’s journey from the farm to the sea, from midshipman to captain, from the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland to the decks of warships and aircraft carriers.

In the picture to the right, John proudly holds his book while wearing a United States Naval Academy fiftieth reunion shirt. He sits in front of a painting that once hung in his childhood home, a dairy farm in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. On the table in front of John sits one of the set of four Seven Ships coffee mugs his son gave him to celebrate pending publication along with a well-deserved flute of champagne served to him by his beloved wife Rachel.

We toast your success and great accomplishment right along with you and your family.

Thank you, John, for your dedicated service to our country and for giving me the privilege of helping you turn your adventures into a book fitting the remarkable life you’ve lived.
