ww2dbaseDavid Stubblebine lives in California and is a retired public safety officer (police and fire). Before entering this field, his undergraduate major at the University of California at Santa Cruz meandered from mathematics to religious studies to criminal justice.
ww2dbaseDavid’s interest in World War II began as a study into his father's Navy career as a carrier pilot in the Pacific during 1944 & 1945. Applying his investigative skills and desire to learn just one more detail, he is expanding the study to include the broader context of the Pacific conflict and the Global Conflict.
