The defense community, conservative movement, and nation lost a good friend over the holidays.
Willard “Bill” Fallon was a great man; an Army helicopter pilot and intelligence officer, successful Capitol Hill aide and corporate strategist. Bill grew up on a farm in central Illinois, and came from sturdy, all-American stock. He was a movement conservative who successfully reached across the ideological divide to work with liberals and Democrats. Activists on both sides of the aisle could learn much from his broad shoulders and open mind.
All of us at the Lexington Institute will miss Bill as a fellow sports fan (he of the Capitals and 49ers), political animal, mentor, and loyal friend. We thank his wife Lee for taking such good care of him, and letting him spend so much time with us.
