SEMPER FI gives a portrait of a young man and his experiences as an enlisted member of the US Marine Corps during the Vietnam War. Orville Clubb begins at the beginning with his earliest memories and tells the story right through to his discharge after serving overseas. Born into a poor family brought together by World War II, the writer grew to maturity as a young Marine. As with many young men of this era of similar socioeconomic status, joining the military as an enlisted man was an attractive option that offered a new start of life.

ORVILLE LEVERNE CLUBB was born on 18 June 1944, in Pascagoula, Mississippi. He attended public schools in both Mississippi and Los Angeles California, graduating from Garfield High School, Los Angeles, in 1962. He then spent more than four years as an enlisted man in the U. S. Marines achieving the rank of Sgt. (E5) prior to being released from active duty in late 1966. As a civilian, he started in the ICT field in late 1966, at the Bank of America in Los Angeles and then at the Bank of Hawaii in Honolulu. In August 1977, he moved to Hong Kong as a Senior lecturer at the Hong Kong Polytechnic. In the 1970s up to his retirement in 2009, Lee Clubb held many posts in South East Asia, in both academia and the computer industry. In higher education, he has been Dean of an Engineering and Technology Faculty, Acting Dean of a Business Faculty, Associate Principal of a large college, Head of an academic division, and an Associate Head of an academic department. In industry he has worked mostly in banking but was the Systems Support manager for Burroughs (HK) in the 1980s. Dr Clubb holds a BA degree in Psychology from the University of Hawaii, a Diploma in Chinese Law from the University of East Asia, Macau (now the University of Macao) and a PhD in Computing from The University of Sunderland in the UK. Now retired, he commutes between Hong Kong and Hawai'i, where he has a macadamia nut and coffee farm.
