Mike: Let us take a walk over to the Dude Maker Hotline and say hello to Scott McEwen, who has a new book out called Target America. It’s part of the Sniper Elite series of novels. Target America is an exciting book and a little bit of a change of pace for us here. I liked what I read in the copy I have and I thought some of you would as well. Scott, tell us a little bit about Target America. I’m reading some of the book. I haven’t finished it yet. Some of the characters that are in the book, if you would, just kind of introduce the audience to what the setup is here for Target America.
Scott McEwen: Target America is a sequel to the Sniper Elite series. The Sniper Elite series was done and made because there were a lot of stories out there from guys I knew in the teams that were black ops stories that I felt, if fictionalized, could be amazing writing. That’s really what I’ve put in this, some fictionalized accounts of things, particularly in the first book but also in this one, of operations that have taken place.

We see that with the guys that went out to try to get them back who were killed. It’s not a small thing when you’re in a situation like these guys are in to have somebody turn on them or even to have somebody who won’t do their job. It’s huge. That’s why this administration has no concept of what it is to be these guys, because they really don’t care. I really don’t think they care what these guys think, and that’s really what bothers me.
That’s why I like to write patriotic work like Target America. The characters in Target America are as patriotic as you can get. If you liked American Sniper and you like Sniper Elite, you’re going to love this book because these guys lay it on the line. A personal friend of mine was Ty Woods. Ty Woods and Glen Doherty, if you look at what they did in Benghazi, it gives you an idea of exactly what these guys are really about. They’re about: We’ve got Americans in trouble. We’ve got a situation where we’re being attacked as a country. They’re going to put their life on the line. They don’t have to be ordered to do it. That’s what they do.
