About the Book

Heroes On Quads is a story about how a group of civilian instructors hook up with an elite unit of Army special forces. Together they train and end up going toe to toe with the enemies of the United States.

The civilians are recruited to teach the soldiers how to ride ATV's (All Terrain Vehicles). The soldiers teach the civilians how to be soldiers.

The book is in two parts. In book one, the team is formed. In cooperation with the private sector a couple of models of high performance ATV's are developed and produced for the US Army. Honda and Palaris team up with army design engineers to do this.

Civilian pro racers are recruited from all over the country. Individually they are great riders. When they come together a sort of magic happens - they become a force to reckon with. What starts out as a job to train the soldiers how to ride soon, through a series of events, puts the soldiers and their instructors on a couple of missions together. They stopped terrorist infiltration into the US. On the second mission they went to the Philipines to try to capture a terrorist leader. They succeed and a whole lot more.

In book two the civilian instructors are once again called upon. They train a growing quad unit on two new more powerful ATV's. They train half of the unit on the new quads. Then they must travel to Turkey and then Iraq to train the rest of the force. The next thing you know the instructors are fully involved with operations. See what they do to become heroes.
