proud to present Old Salt: Yarns from the Fabric of Life
at Sea by David D. Hambleton. “Old Salt” is a term for a

and comes home to tell the stories. This book contains
tales of US Navy warships and the amazing patriots who
worked them. Hambleton was wet behind the ears for

David D. Hambleton was born in Minnesota in April
1963. He is a proudly retired US Navy electronics
technician. He lives in Woodbridge, VA, with his wife
Cassie, with whom he has four children: Grace, Eliana,
Jonah and Heidi.
