Hero Father Billy Vaughn Releases New Book: “Betrayed – Exposing the High Cost of the War on Terror”

On August 6, 2011, 30 US service members were killed when a CH-47 Chinook helicopter they were being transported in crashed in Wardak province, Afghanistan. It was the deadliest single loss for U.S. forces in the decade-long war in Afghanistan. 17 members of the elite Navy SEALs were killed in the crash.

In 2012, Karen and Billy Vaughn, parents of Aaron Carson Vaughn, spoke at the Defending the Defenders forum sponsored by the Tea Party Patriots outside the RNC Convention in Tampa. Karen brought a copy of the form letter they were sent following their son’s death.

Obama honored the fallen SEALS by sending form letters to their parents.


The Vaughns spoke with FOX News about their son’s death. They blame Vice President Joe Biden for endangering their son and fellow members of SEAL Team 6 by tying them to Bin Laden raid.

Now Billy Vaughn has a book—

Special Ops Betrayed
— Billy Vaughn stands in the defense of American freedom from tyranny; MG Paul Vallely stands by his side because of his clear-cut military perspective and his extensive background in Special Ops. Together they announce the pre-publication launch of their book about the tragedy of Extortion 17.

The warriors on that CH-47 Chinook helicopter were compromised by their leaders:

** the same ‘leaders’ who stood by and did nothing as a national embassy was overrun,
** the same ‘leaders’ who have ordered surveillance on Americans through the NSA,
** the same ‘leaders’ who have used the IRS to stymie voices of dissent in our country,
** the same ‘leaders’ who investigated the press and media, and singled out news organizations,
** the same ‘leaders’ who force unwanted and crushing regulations and laws upon us,
** the same ‘leaders’ who leave not just our fighting men and women at risk, but also our country, our homes, and our families unprotected and unsafe.

The book goes beyond what was discussed in the press conference of May 9th, 2013 at the National Press Club by multiple family members of the fallen and noted members of the military. It exposes the political policies and failed ideology that precipitated the unnecessary take down of Extortion 17. This heart-wrenching book of a father’s search for truth about his son’s death is a must-read. Click on the book, button, or this link to reserve your copy at the reduced July rate of $12.95.
