Send Me: The Incredible True Story of a Mother at War (Hardback)

Awaiting publication


The extraordinary story of American special operator and trailblazer Shannon Kent, who was killed at the age of 35 by a suicide bomber while hunting high value targets on a classified mission in Syria in 2019.

Of the 1.3 million active-duty service members in the U.S. military, only a tiny fraction are selected as "operators" in elite special mission units. Shannon Kent was one of the first women to serve at this level and was widely recognized as one of the best.

Shannon served as a Cryptologic Warfare Technician, responsible for signals intelligence and electronic warfare, but her proficiency with language set her apart. She was assigned to the Joint Special Operations Command, where she worked clandestinely to hunt the most wanted terrorists in the world.

Send Me is Shannon's heroic life story, revealing the truth of both her work and her death. Shannon's team wasn't on a routine patrol the day she died, nor out for lunch as many news outlets reported. She was hunting ISIS cells.

Joe, a retired Special Forces soldier, recalls how he and Shannon met in a war zone, their love forged during an elite special operations training course, their dedication spanning multiple combat deployments and the birth of their two boys. It is the legacy of an extraordinary woman who rose to the apex of the military, working with the most elite forces in the world, lifting the veil from the life of a Special Forces family to share their duty, sacrifice, and humanity.
