Background Information

John Anthony Chestara was born in July, 1926. Everything was fine for the first three years, he says, but then came the Great Depression. By the time that was nearly over, World War II had begun. John, 15 1/2 years old at the time, coerced his parents and joined the Navy. He was on his first submarine, USS Bonefish, when he was sixteen, and was on his seventh "seek and sink" patrol when the dropping of the atomic bomb ended the war. He met his wife, Gladys, on July 2, 1950. They eloped and were married 24 days later. They have three children, two grandchildren, and live in Valley Falls, New York. After a long career as a newspaperman and in public relations, John wrote A Second Journey, his first novel.
