A keen interest in all things military has always been a central part of Michael Romanowski's life. Many members of his family are veterans of one (or more!) of the armed services. His grandfather served in the First World War. His father was in the U.S. Navy during World War II. So it seemed natural to him to join the United States Marine Corps, and thereby served in various locations around the globe, including Camp Pendleton, CA, and Okinawa, Japan.
After his time in the service Michael earned a BA in journalism from Wayne State University in Detroit. After graduation he worked as a security consultant for the automotive industry.
Today he lives in Central Missouri with his lovely wife and two children. His interests include collecting antique firearms, military history, and, of course, reading a good book whenever time allows.
