Tyrone G Martin

Martin was a career surface warfare officer who served in both the Korean War and the war in Vietnam. He commanded two destroyers prior to taking command of the Constitution in 1974. That tour in command resulted in Commander Martin's becoming the first of the frigate's captains since 1815 to be decorated and in the ship receiving her first official unit commendation. Currently, Commander Martin is working on seven other book projects at his home on Devil's Ridge.
