On behalf of the National Naval Officer Association, we express our deepest sympathies regarding the passing of CDR (ret) Dr. William Bundy. His legacy extends beyond his successful 30-year Naval career to Associate Provost for Warfighting and Research of the Naval War College.
Dr. Bundy invested and mentored numerous military and nonmilitary personnel throughout his entire career. He was an advocate and lifetime member of the National Naval Officers Association as he believed in diversity and inclusivity within our sea services. His passion for people and their success will live on as he was the personification of the quote: “to leave the world better than you found it.” Our hearts go out to the Bundy family during this difficult time as we mourn with you.

A Note from Will Bundy Jr.
“Thank you for any effort you can make to participate in my father’s services.”
A Note from NNOA Historian
This message about the “Passing of our most Productive and Legendary NNOA Family Member, Dr. Will Bundy,” is most devastating, I have just opened up my e-mail after finishing my weekly radio show, “Old Skool Sunday with Dr. Rick Wright.” Life is so “precious,” I am now in “tears,” remembering, when I first met “Will,” in the 1980’s when I wrote a story about him in our NNOA Newsletter. William Bundy, Jr., “Stay Strong, we love you and your family so very much during this time of extreme lost!”
God Bless the Family!
Roosevelt “Rick” Wright, Jr., Ph.D., CAPT., USNR(ret)
