George Wallace


Born and raised in Eastern Ohio, Commander Wallace received his commission in the US Navy and a degree in engineering from The Ohio State University. After the obligatory and memorable interview with Admiral Rickover, he was accepted into the nuclear power and submarine communities. He served on two of Admiral Rickover’s famous “Forty One for Freedom”, the USS JOHN ADAMS SSBN 620 and the USS WOODROW WILSON SSBN 624, during which time he made nine one-hundred-day deterrent patrols through the height of the Cold War.
Commander Wallace served as Executive Officer on the STURGEON class nuclear attack submarine SPADEFISH, SSN 668. SPADEFISH and all her sisters were decommissioned during the downsizing that occurred in the 1990′s. The passing of that great ship served as the inspiration for “Final Bearing”, his first novel co-authored with Don Keith.
Commander Wallace then commanded the LOS ANGELES class nuclear attack submarine USS HOUSTON SSN 713. During this tour of duty he worked extensively with the SEAL community developing SEAL/submarine tactics. Under his command, the HOUSTON was awarded the CIA Meritorious Unit Citation.
Commander George Wallace retired to the civilian business world in 1995, after twenty-two years of service on nuclear submarines.
Commander Wallace lives with his wife, Penny, in Alexandria, Virginia
