Born in Los Angeles during the 1950’s Cold War Era, Capt. Simpson was influenced at an early age by the prospects of nuclear war. Growing up and through his early adulthood, he was tutored and trained by his father (U.S. Army 82nd Airborne [Europe WW2] & L.A.P.D.), who was highly experienced in warfare and survival. 'Capt. Bill' has an Associate of Science Degree in Flight Technology and also holds a U.S.C.G. 500-ton captain’s license for commercial inspected passenger vessels, including, power, sail and assistance towing vessels. In 1987 Capt. Simpson received a commendation from the U.S. Coast Guard Honolulu Sector for his assistance in the successful rescue of two sailors lost overboard at sea. In 2010, Capt. Simpson was again instrumental in the successful rescue of an American sailor lost over-board in the Sea of Cortez in a storm. Capt.
