About the Author

Dale A. Jenkins

Dale Jenkins has had a lifelong interest in the Navy and international affairs. He is a former US Navy officer who served on a destroyer in the Pacific, and for a time was home-ported in Yokosuka, Japan. Pacific Fleet commitments took him to the Philippines, Taiwan, South Korea, Hong Kong and Singapore. While on active duty he was awarded the Navy/Marine Corps Expeditionary Medal. His business career was primarily in international banking, and he also was a staff director at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York. Dale currently serves on the Samuel Eliot Morison Committee of the Naval Order of the United States, New York, and as a Regional Director of the Naval War College Foundation. As a result of his active duty experience and new revelations, Dale provides insights into the diplomacy and strategies of the Pacific region. He has degrees in history and business from Harvard and Columbia.

Having a long and affectionate relationship with Japan, Dale (on right of picture) and wife Sandra (third from right) with friends had tea at the Tokyo home of recently departed, but forever revered, artist Toko Shinoda (second from left).

For outside activity Dale plays golf, and two years ago fulfilled an ambition to play in Scotland. The photo to the right is of Dale on the 18th tee of St. Andrews, a nanosecond before impact.
