Will Willis is a Military Brat

Will Willis was born on Valentine’s day or February 14 of 1975. Willis was strangely born in Portugal because his father, Jakob Willis, was in the army working in the country. We all know how the military profession runs in the family. So, Will Willis always was wanting to join the army as well, finally following his dream as soon as his graduation from high school.

Will Willis’s Impressive Military Record

We do not know Willis’s father, Jakob Willis’s military record, in detail, but it would be safe to say that his son probably outshone his father’s service. Will Willis joined the 3rd Ranger Battalion of the 75th Ranger Regiment in 1993. It was right after his high school graduation and around two years after his dad’s retirement from the army.

He would serve in the regiment for well over four years before deciding to change his focus towards the Air Force. It did not even take a month for him to become a Pararescueman; in the same month, he quit his regiment in June 1998. In his new role, Willis would take part is a series of an extensive search, rescue, and recovery missions, which would consist of tasks as unique as safe retrieval of NASA astronauts after landing.

In the end, Will Willis left his military days behind, but you can count him not forget his former Army Ranger, Air Force Pararescueman, and Tactical Emergency Trauma Specialist ways.

Will Willis’s Deserving Net Worth from his TV Career.

Many of you may be wondering, “Fine, Will Willis was a great soldier, but how is he capable of hosting a show about bladesmith?” The answer is simple. Will’s time in the military and Air Force has made him a superb Tactician of all kinds of weapons from simplistic blades to military-grade weaponry. Furthermore, he is not a judge, so; he doesn’t have to be an expert bladesmith anyway.

Furthermore, since joining the ‘Forged in Fire’ cast, Willis has newfound respect and love for the art of bladesmith. He even is training and educating himself to be able to smith a knife now and then. The show also released a video of Willis learning to forge a blade with ‘Forged in Fire’ judge and friend, J. Neil, with another judge, Doug Marcaida.

He was also hot of the 2011 TV series ‘Triggers: Weapons That Changed the World.’

Now that we have all of that info on his career, both military and TV, we can finally get to assessing the 45-year-old’s net worth. Putting it all together, we can assume Will Willis’s net worth to be around $500,000 in 2019. His net worth for 2020 is still under review, but we will have it for you shortly.
