The son of Vice Admiral John Duncan Bulkeley, he was born on July 20, 1945.
Thankfully, Captain Bulkeley is alive as of December 1999, but sadly his young son, Peter Tare Bulkeley, March 22, 1979-September 11, 1981, died too soon and lies buried with his grandfather in the family plot in Section 5 of Arlington National Cemetery.
Michael Robert Patterson was born in Arlington and is the son of a former officer of the US Army. So it was no wonder that sooner or later his interests drew him to American history and especially to American military history. Many of his articles can be found on renowned portals like the New York Times, Washingtonpost or Wikipedia.
