Larry Laswell served in the US Navy for eight years. In navy parlance, he was a mustang, someone who rose from the enlisted ranks to receive an officer’s commission. While enlisted, he was assigned to the USS John Marshall SSBN-611 (Gold Crew). After earning his commission, he served as main engines officer aboard the USS Intrepid CV-11. His last assignment was as a submarine warfare officer aboard the USS William M. Wood DD-715 while she was home ported in Elefsis, Greece.
After the Navy, Larry became a computer programmer and managed to break-away from the technical stigma to become the Vice President of Operations for an international insurance company with responsibilities to six operating subsidiaries.
Before retiring, Larry took the helm as CEO of an employee benefits company and security broker-dealer managing billions in assets.
Larry wants to continue work on The Marathon Watch series, an upcoming science fiction series titled The Ethosians, and an anthology of over eighty humorous sea stories titled A Ship-load of Sea Stories & 1 Fairy Tale, unfortunately the side effects of chemo-therapy prevent him from writing.
