The Military Writers Society of America's Bronze Medal Award

Bob Stockton

Award-winning storyteller Bob Stockton left high school in 1957 to join the Navy, where he served for 20 years, retiring in 1977 as a chief petty officer. Since Navy retirement Bob has earned undergraduate and graduate university degrees and has worked as a shipyard welder’s helper, university adjunct graduate instructor, epidemiologist, pharmaceutical trainer, small business owner and international radio host.

Exposure to Agent Orange while serving in Vietnam led to the Veterans Administration declaring Bob fully disabled. He now lives near his three children and four grandchildren in Jacksonville, Florida.
