Vic Mills was born in Los Angeles in 1942. In the late 1950s, while attending high school in Felton, California (Santa Cruz), Vic was active in music — singing, writing, and performing.
In 1966, prior to his induction into the Army, Vic moved to Seattle. He served as an Army MP in Vietnam from September of 1967 to November of 1968. In his first novel, “SNAFU,” Vic wrote from personal experience of the inhumanity of war and the great compassion of the human spirit.
Upon his return from Vietnam and release from the military, he returned to his job with the City of Seattle. In 1984, Vic started his own vehicle consulting firm.
