Description: <p>Do a deep dive into life aboard a submarine with Captain Charlie MacVean as he discusses the book that features him, <em>Down Deep: Captain Charles R. MacVean, U.S. Navy (Ret.), PhD: Courage &bull; Leadership &bull; Hijinks</em> (published June 2021) with the book’s author, John Freeman. During the mid-1970s, MacVean led the USS Seawolf submarine in the most daring and dangerous undersea missions of the Cold War. Retired and now in his early 80s, Charlie is a long-time Point Loma resident and popular guest speaker. He is among a small handful of military leaders and astronauts who have received not just one, but two Distinguished Service Medals. &quot;Down Deep&quot; is a self-published biography of Captain MacVean (Ret, U.S. Navy), an &ldquo;as told to&rdquo; collection of sea stories, by turns rollicking and gripping, that reflect his legacy of heroism and hijinks.
