About the Author
The author, Ray Helstrom, views himself as just another American who has lived most of his life in the 20th century. He attributes his long and fortuitous life to the rigors of a childhood on the iron range of Northern Minnesota, his World War II teen years in a bay area Navy base town in Northern California, his vital service and college youth years, as well as his family-rearing and marketing/merchandising career years in Southern California. His blessed adventure years with JoAnn and now profound reminiscing years have been well-spent in the Rocket City in Northern Alabama.
