Mr. Willie Lee Mobley was born December 18, 1942 in Pinehurst, GA to the late Daisy Wilcox Mobley Davis and the late Monroe Mobley, Sr.

He received a Vietnam Service Medal, a National Defense Service Medal and a Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal. After he left Thailand, he was stationed at Rhein Main AFB in Frankfurt, Germany. He then was stationed in Dover, DE and his final station of duty, Shaw AFB, Sumter.

Upon retiring from the USAF, Willie started a civil service career for the Air Force at Shaw AFB, SC as a Material Control, Chief Purchasing Agent for Civil Engineering for the next twenty (20) plus years. He retired from Civil Service in 2009.
