About James Steffes

I was born and raised in St. Cloud, Minnesota. Always amoured by the sea and

adventure, I joined the U.S. Navy at the age of 17, serving aboard several ships and shore

commands totaling 26 years service. Continuing a second career as an HVAC Mechanic,

I retired in 2002. Married with three grown children, we live in Sun City, CA. An

incident during my tour aboard Swift Boats in June 1968 has always affected me and

drove me to write a book about this experience. Ten years of research and many witness

testimonies have resulted in this book.
