Abstract:

An aging United States Coast Guard rescue swimmer's team is killed in a horrific rescue mission. Just prior to this same mission his wife announces that she cannot take anymore. This leaves him an emotional wreck. His commander gives him a choice - quit or take a position as an instructor at the USCG training facility in Louisiana. Reluctantly he takes the position and moves into the school. Once there he immediately increases the 18 week curriculum that routinely fails half of the people that attend. He meets a young man with unlimited potential, but with some secret that seems to hold him back as a team player. Delving into young man's past, links are found that make him a psychic twin to the older man.
