Libertarian International Organization Fellow Observer Col. William Gilson, USMC, advised on military trends.
LIO remembers the signal work of Col. William Gilson, United States Marine Corps.
Said by friends to be gifted with 'the legendary Gilson charm and diplomacy,' Col. Gilson advised LIO on military trends and worked behind the scenes for encouraging those working for friendly military and trans-partisan contacts leading to the end of the Cold War and fall of the Latin and other dictators. He had been inactive in recent years but followed work towards world peace with interest, and was deeply supportive of historical study of aviation.
Col. Gilson served on the Board of the Dallas Military Ball, where he was Chairman in 2007. He has served as the Commanding Officer of the Marine Corps Aviation Association and on the Board of the Veterans Memorial Air Park. Col. Gilson also gave generously of his time to the Wounded Warrior Program and Young Marines Association.
