Roger Ball! is the story of Captain John Monroe “Hawk” Smith.  It chronicles his growth as a naval officer, his seasoning as a fighter pilot, his hardening as a commanding officer, and his ascension as a leader.  This is the story of his quest to help make naval fighter aviation the world’s most formidable, innovative, and lethal air combat force in the world. This is Hawk’s story!
