This vet’s military experience made him the perfect host for ‘Special Ops Mission’

Army and Air Force veteran Wil Willis arrived in Los Angeles in 2009 to pursue a job as a TV show host for the Discovery Channel. His time as a pararescueman and as a special operator with the Army’s 3rd Ranger Battalion gave him the bona fides to debut in the military reality show “Special Ops Mission.”

In this episode of the WATM Spotlight Series, Willis recounts his unusual transition from door-kicker to TV personality during a photo shoot with Marine photographer Cedric Terrell.
