Stan Bain served in Vietnam from June 5, 1967 to July 7, 1968, 13 months. While serving in the Mekong Delta he was acquainted with some orphans at an orphanage in My Tho Vietnam. The author's first book, "You Are Never Alone" will give you more details from his tour and the part these orphans played in his life. That experience and love of children extended to the job of a lifetime, being Santa Claus. When asked how many children do you have? He answers, "Oh… about 25 Thousand! They range from age 5 days to 97 years of age." Most people are taken back, the author explains, "I never fathered children due to a decision I made in Vietnam, which now I regret. However, being Santa, that experience has helped fill the void." This book is about the authors experience as Santa Claus which found children of all ages have wishes at Christmas, but many were concerned with family and world problems. Many times, the author felt like he was a counselor. Stan Bain was born and raised in Kalispell, Montana, and attended Northern Montana College before being drafted into the army. He holds a Private Multi-Engine Pilot's License, Class D Skydiver's License, Senior Parachute Rigger's License, and Master Scuba Diver Certification. The author now lives in Florida enjoying semi-retirements.
