What does the Navy SEALs and human trafficking have in common? Absolutely nothing except being enemies! That should be enough to put this vile group on notice. The SEALs have long ago been accepted as the elite. If there is a tough job to be done, these are the guys to call upon. Anyone that is familiar with Bin Laden has heard of the SEALs and the heroic mission to rid the world of this terrorist. These well-trained men are as tough as they come. When the mission runs into trouble they know how to get it done. Their motto says it all: A Navy SEAL never gives up. So what can we say to those involved in human trafficking? You had better watch out! There is a team of former SEALs that are coming after you.
The President of theUnited States is fed up with the disappearance of our young people. The FBI now has a special division that handles cases involving human trafficking. However, the task can be overwhelming, and that is the reason a team of former SEALs has been called upon.
It is frightening to learn how powerful the organization of human trafficking has become. Each year there are as many as 800,000 missing person’s reports filed and of those, some 150,000 are actual abductions. In the end only 1,100 to 1,200 bodies are found. These remaining missing persons are never heard from again.
Why did I become involved in writing about human trafficking? It is because the problem seems to be getting worse. I can personally recall a young woman disappearing on her way to the office. She was employed at the corporate level of the company that I worked for. It did not take long for news to reach everyone concerning her disappearance. Can you imagine that? One morning your loved one leaves for work, never to be heard from again. It just so happens this occurred in Oklahoma, City. Now three decades later a team of former SEALs is coming out of retirement to fight against this vile group of human trafficking. According to news reports, they are operating in the state of Oklahoma. It is ironic, isn’t it? However I wrote The Twelve SEALs before any of this was known to me. While this novel is totally a creative work of fiction, it must be noted that the statistics are based upon well-documented information. It is my purpose to call to action.
There are young people disappearing all over the world at an alarming rate. It is time to do something about it. The Twelve SEALs provides a scenario that could happen to anyone, at any time. Not everybody that disappears is a victim of human trafficking, but I have reasons to believe a lot of them are. Just because a person is over eighteen does not relieve us of our responsibility to search for them.
It is appalling to learn that so many cases of missing persons are never solved. Maybe here is a solution. Why not put our best men on the task? This is a job for none other that the Navy SEALs.
