    I enjoyed many conversations with Bill about his love for his family, his counrty ans the United States Air Force. This man was a true HERO!!! When I had the opportunity to share photos of Lackland AFB with him, he shared photos of himself during Viet Nam with some of the dogs he had trained. When the story of Nemo was told, he shared it with such pride & respect for a the Hero that he had the opportunity to meet. Bill, you are going to be missed. You are an AMERICAN HERO!!! Hats off Airman
