AMRA Member Compared to Tom Clancy
"Readers who miss Clancy will devour Campbell!" - Booklist
At the 2014 National Convention, AMRA member and author Rick Campbell spoke to a rapt audience about the writing process and provided intriguing clues to the premise of his book, The Trident Deception.
A retired Navy Commander and writer for Macmillan / St. Martin's Press, Campbell soon followed up The Trident Deception with Empire Rising. Both novels were released to critical acclaim and were Top-50 national bestsellers and Top-20 bestsellers at Barnes & Noble.
Now, his third book - Ice Station Nautilus - releases to bookstores everywhere on June 28, 2016. A fourth book is scheduled for release in 2017.
“It’s hard to admit, for a marine sniper like myself, but the deadliest weapon on the battlefield is a nuclear submarine. No one puts the reader inside one like Rick Campbell does in The Trident Deception. I couldn’t put it down. Compelling and thrilling, this novel is a must read.”
-Jack Coughlin, bestselling author of Shooter

Who Will Be the Next "GREATEST GENERATION" ?
The "Greatest Generation" is worried!
Today's younger retirees are not joining Associations that serve military retirees. This has serious implications for the future!
Budget cuts to federal programs are protected by the voices of current members and leaders of organizations representing military retirees, many of whom are in their advanced years. When they are unable to participate, who will sound the alarm when benefits are threatened?
Military retirees who served in the U.S. Armed Forces, whether during times of war or peace, must take up the challenge to protect earned benefits - and the more voices directed at Congress, the better chance of successfully containing cuts that affect all service members, whether they are retired or will retire in the future. Budget cuts also have serious implications for the service member's spouse and dependents; who will provide for them when the service member is gone if benefits for spouses and dependents are also gone?
AMRA welcomes to membership individuals from all branches and all ranks who are retired from active duty, Guard and Reserve, medically retired and 100% service-connected disabled, and surviving spouses.
TOGETHER, we can make a difference in the lives of military retirees and their families by amplifying the "voice of the retiree" when it comes to protecting the benefits earned by a career of service to the nation. If you qualify, click on Membership from the blue navigation bar on the left and add your voice to ours as we advocate for issues important to military retirees, their spouses and dependents.
