William “Bill” Brown Hunter October 20, 1923 – July 28, 2016
Bill was was a SSGT in the United States Marine Corps. He served two active tours: WWII December 1942-November 1946 and Korea November 1950 – December 1952. His friend, Mr. Jeff Snell, says he was “One “heck of a horse trainer. If anyone talked about professional horse trainers, Bill’s name would be mentioned.” He was a 5-year consecutive member of our Post 19 and bequeathed a generous donation to our Post, the Wounded Warriors program and the Paola VFW.
