“We can all lead a life of adventure if we want” says author High O’Brien when he spoke at Orange City Library on Thursday night to launch his book Undaunted about life in the military – from Navy Clearance Diver to Special Forces. A short video captured an overview of counter terrorism training, a reading from his book gave a glimpse into Navy life and then he shared motivations for getting the most out of life with anecdotes and inspiring mottos such as “attempt the impossible”, “step off the edge” and “nothing worth having is easy.” Thanks Hugh and thank you everyone for coming along!
