The Only Easy Day was Yesterday
The Only Easy Day was Yesterday is the unofficial motto of the United States Navy SEAL. This story is fiction but it is built on a foundation of fact. It is the story of Ashley Morgan Jamison and how she earned the Navy SEAL Triton and became the first woman in American history to earn the right to be called a Navy SEAL.
Navy SEALs are not born that way. They work hard to develop the physical strength to make it happen, and they must have a mindset that allows them to be mentally tough.
Ashley is challenged at each stage of her life, but she meets all challenges with a mental toughness that very few possess. This is a story that just doesn’t happen overnight. It is a story that is developed over 23 years of a woman’s life. Every year presents a new challenge and Ashley thrives on challenges.
Ashley’s story is fiction but it is not far from reality. Women are now allowed to apply to become United States Navy SEALs but they must pass every test that men must pass. There are no qualification differences. Some women have tried but, as of this writing, no woman has yet to succeed.
It is my hope that somewhere, sometime a woman will read this story, and based on Ashley’s experiences, the reader will learn, apply and succeed in pulling off something that no woman has yet to accomplish.
I would like nothing better than to see this fiction story become a reality.
