Serendipity—An Afternoon with Lee and Bud Willis and Friends

 

Bud and Lee Willis

Bud and Lee Willis

When I wrote a review of Marble Mountain: A Vietnam Memoir, I had never met Lee and Bud Willis. I had no idea how delightful these two people are. Meeting them at Bud’s book signing at F&M Bank on Friday afternoon was like running into two friends you had known all your life. Personable, down-to-earth, and genuinely nice are just a few of the accurate adjectives that describe this couple who also spend their time contributing to Wounded Warriors, taking their dog, Boo, to his volunteer duties (and adventures in hotels!), and attending Bud’s book signings all over the South.

Joe Pitts, second-term Representative for Legislative District 67 of the State of Tennessee, introduced Bud about 5:00 p.m. to a full room of admirers. Joe’s remarks about Bud’s career in the Marines included mention of his more than 600 missions to save the lives of others who had been wounded by enemy fire.
