Just read that long time Professor of Military History at VMI, Colonel Tyson “Ty Ty” Wilson died on December 21, 2011. Here is the link to his Obit . I have a plefora of Ty Ty stories. He was a real character, a great professor, and a Marine through and through. Ask all VMI graduates who knew to share a story. He was one of the greats. May he Rest in Peace. So long faithful warrior and teacher.
