Wil Willis’ Military Service
If you’re wondering why Wil mostly contributed to TV shows about military issues, it’s because he went through rigorous military training. He joined the Army after graduating from high school in 1993. Wil went through Advanced Individual Training and Basic Airborne School. After that, he completed the Ranger Indoctrination Program (R.I.P.).
The veteran served on active duty with the Army’s Co. 3rd Ranger Battalion until February 1998.

Wil eventually joined the Air Force Reserves in August 2007 as a pararescueman with the 308th Rescue Squadron. In August 2008, he retired from the military after one year of reserve duty. His net worth is still a mystery. During his time in the military, however, he earned an average monthly salary of $225 before taxes.
