More About George Wallace
Commander George Wallace USN (ret.) served in the US Navy for twenty-two years as an officer on nuclear submarines. After receiving his commission through Naval ROTC at The Ohio State University, 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). He made nine one-hundred-day deterrent patrols during the height of the Cold War. Commander Wallace served as Executive Officer on the Sturgeon class nuclear attack submarine USS SPADEFISH (SSN 668). Spadefish and all her sister-ships were de-commissioned during the downsizings that occurred in the 1990's. Reflections on the passing of such capable "boats" inspired his first novel, the National Best Seller, Final Bearing, co-authored with Don Keith. Their second novel, Firing Point, is in production as a major motion picture. Commander Wallace commanded the Los Angeles class nuclear attack submarine USS HOUSTON (SSN 713) from February 1990 to August 1992. 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 Wallace and his wife Penny live in Alexandria, Virginia.

SLING WORD MASTER Feb 8, 2008
As poetry goes, fame comes last. George Wallace, if I was in charge, would be herald the minstrel mountain troubadog of joyous bark and babble. A true wizard in the art of language, as beat, paint or something to stand in. By and away the furthest word from a man of mouth. The last 10 or so poems in this collection could alone blow your head into cupcakes. It did me. Recommended highly.
