Colonel William M. Frash, USMC (ret.) “served as the youngest commissioned officer of a squadron in the Marine Corps and later the first commanding officer of the base which by that time was Miramar. After earning his wings in early 1942, he was transferred to Camp Kearny, San Diego, and became executive officer for Marine Fighter Squadron 122, which was shipped to the Pacific.”  Colonel William M. Frash “attended University of California Berkeley where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in 1937. He joined the Marine Corps soon after and trained at the Naval Air Station, Opalocka, Fla., receiving his wings in early 1942.” (Flight Jacket 5/2006) Colonel William M. Frash died in May 2006.  He is the author of Hunter Hunted; Impending Peril; Imminent Engagement; and, Is the Red Witch Dead?


According to the book description of Hunter Hunted, A new emperor rules Japan, and former President Teddy Roosevelt sends Marine Corps Captain Matt Hunter to Asia to spy out the monarch's plans for expansion in the Pacific. Hunter sails to the South Pacific aboard The Swift, learning along the way that a murderous bandit calling himself Matt Hunter has been plundering throughout the islands. To protect his shipmates, his mission, and his reputation, Hunter must defeat the malicious counterfeit. Accompanied by the vivacious Jessica Hopkins, who captures his heart after he rescues her from the tyrant ruler of an isolated atoll, Hunter sails from island to island, gathering intelligence about the Japanese and hunting the impostor along a trail of silver looted from sunken Spanish galleons.


Bill Frash served twenty-two years as a naval combat aviator in the United States Marine Corps.
