Last night was the 6th and final taped episode of Special Ops Mission starring 15 year Ranger and Pararescuemen Wil Willis. CJ and I interviewed Wil a while back for you served radio and then I wrote about the interview and posted a link at http://bouhammer.com/2009/08/interview-with-special-ops-mission-host-wil-willis/. I then wrote a review of Special Ops Mission at http://bouhammer.com/2009/08/review-of-special-ops-mission/.
Those two postings have been some of the most popular and most searched on my site over the last few months. There are a lot of people who appear to like the show and are interested in Wil. Well I have good news for you fans, you can now become a fan of the Special Ops Mission & Wil Willis Fan Club United! Facebook Group. Wil himself is a member and is pretty quick in answering peopleâ€™s questions, comments, etc. If you like the show, I suggest clicking on the Group name above and becoming a fan.
Now that the first 6 recorded episodes are over, I guess there are talks with the Military Channel about the topic of creating another season of the show or not. You can help with convincing them to continue with the show by voicing your opinion.
Some of the contact info to let the decision makers know how much you like the show.

When we interviewed Wil over at You Served Radio, the people at Military Channel were nice enough to send us a special Screener DVD for us to review. This DVD is a one of a kind. It has two episodes on it; AT SEA Episode 1: Aviation – Final Cut and the other is SPECIAL OPS MISSION Episode 1: Operation Urban Terror – Final Cut.
This series is not available for sale yet. We have been given permission to auction off the DVD in order to raise money for this monthâ€™s benefactor, Soldierâ€™s Angels. This auction runs through next Thursday (Sept 24th). So here is your chance to grab a one of a kind DVD and in turn help out a great organization like Soldierâ€™s Angels.
