Count the Ways is the tale of a reluctant young businessman called upon to vindicate the memory of his grandfather. Flashbacks between the years 2000 and 1950 unfold a touching story of an unlikely romance between a US Naval Academy Midshipman and an obstinate Iowa farm girl. The grandson discovers amazing parallels between his own and his grandfather's life. The recovery of his grandfather's remains in Korea sends David Judge, twenty-eight, upon a life-changing journey.

When Ulmer asked his captain "why me?" the skipper replied facetiously, "I don't think you're smart enough to make second . After a 32 year Career in The US Navy Submarine Service, D. M. Ulmer was employed by the Boeing Company (1979-96).

When Ulmer asked his captain "why me?" the skipper replied facetiously, "I don't think you're smart enough to make second class and I need the bunk space!" Ulmer returned to CLAMAGORE in 1967 as Commanding Officer. He then became one of the few, if not only, to have served in an enlisted status and as commanding officer in the same warship. He currently volunteers at Overlake Hospital Medical Center and the Seattle Museum of Flight.

Don shows us a scenario that very nearly happened. Living in Redmond, Washington with his wife Carol, Ulmer has written three other books; Count the Ways, Missing Person and The Roche Harbor Caper. In doing so, he not only gives us a view of professional Navy officers, but opens a rare glimpse into the war-fighters’ personal lives – on both sides of a conflict we hope never happens. He has also published several articles. Author D. Ulmer volunteers as a Seattle Museum of Flight Docent.

William Omar Landrón Rivera, better known by his stage name Don Omar, is a Puerto Rican reggaeton singer and actor. He is sometimes referred to by his nicknames El Rey, and King of Kings of Reggaeton Music. On 1 September 2017, he announced that he would retire after a series of concerts at the José Miguel Agrelot Coliseum in Puerto Rico, scheduled to be held on 15, 16 and 17 December. He returned to music on 20 April with his song Ramayama with Farruko.

Omar made his way behind the counter and let Shakti jump to the floor. Jackson took a deep breath. After a three-count, he burst from behind the curtain. Without thinking, he punched Omar square in his jaw. Omar stumbled back a step, his cigarette holder falling to the floor. Jackson's hand throbbed, like he punched a brick wall. He flexed his fingers.

The recovery of his grandfather's remains in Korea sends David Judge, twenty-eight, upon a life-changing journey. Lieutenant Junior Grade Brendan Judge, missing in action since 1953, had married Carlie Buhl two years earlier. He was said to have betrayed her, thus setting in motion events that resulted in her tragic death. The Buhl's, with the exception of Carlie's brother Keith, are contemptuous of Brendan. Keith calls upon David to vindicate his grandfather so he may be permitted to lie beside his wife in the Buhl family plot in Iowa. Survivors of the era unfold a moving tale of Brendan Judge's struggle to win the elusive Carlie over the objections of her father, Tom Buhl, who sees his daughter as key to preventing the loss of his beloved farm.Follow along as it wanders back and forth between from the eventful summer of 1950 through the year 2000.

Bandiri
While reading Count the Ways, I couldn't help but feel that this story was closer to the author than anyone had let on. If not the authors own story then most likely that of a very, very good close and personal friend. There were too many deep,genuine,and believable emotions described herein to be considered 'just another story.' Maybe I'm wrong, or perhaps Mr. Ulmer's story telling is that good. Either way it was an excellent read. This story appealed to me on two levels first because I had been in the Navy and second because I am also a pilot with a love for vintage aircraft. I've enjoyed the all submarine stories by Mr. Ulmer, but this one turns out to be my favorite of his works so far.

attention concerning two young people who's emotions,tragedy, love and disasters
impact each family and two generations later a family member is requested to
search for the truth. This is a pass on book.
