Segment featuring Bud Willis can still be viewed: link
About: Columbia native, Vietnam veteran on "Today" show
I appreciate Alissa writing this letter to your online magazine. It was quite an honor for my husband, Bud, to be chosen out of several thousand entrants to be a part of the Everyone Has a Story segment on the NBC Today Show.
The segment can still be viewed on line by going to The Today Show. That will route you to a page that features a picture of Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb at the top next to the words Everyone Has a Story. Click on their picture and my husband's story and picture will pop up. There is a video link to view the entire live segment.
We were deeply touched that NBC would further honor Bud by making a contribution to the Wounded Warrior Project.
As of this writing, we have received over 300 personal e-mails and phone calls...many wanting to contribute to the Wounded Warrior Project. To say the least, it is humbling and we are deeply grateful.
s/Lee Barnes Willis
