WARRIOR (hard back edition)
By: Wilt Browning
“For many years I began my day by reading Wilt Browning’s outstanding articles in the Greensboro Daily News and later the News & Record. Wilt had a way with words that captured the essence of that day’s story. Wilt is now writing books with the same clarity and grace that make his stories leap off the page.
“As a Korean War-era veteran with the United States Coast Guard I never saw any actual combat. But thanks to Wilt’s newest book Warrior From Grenades to Greeting Cards the Story of an American Fighting Man I feel as if I was right in the middle of the action. Wilt exquisitely captured the story of Ken Simpson a Korean War veteran who may not have been rightfully honored for his exploits during that conflict. This book will change that injustice and allow readers to feel as if they travelled right along with Ken both during and after the war.
“I am an avid fan of Wilt Browning’s writing and his newest book confirms for me that he is one of the best storytellers in the country. I am equally proud that he is a constituent and friend of mine. I heartily recommend Warrior From Grenades to Greeting Cards the Story of an American Fighting Man. Congressman Howard Coble
Five-time award winning journalist Wilt Browning has written a compelling inspirational
true story about a decorated military man. An army chaplain called Ken Simpson “the bravest man I ever met fearless when he faced the enemy.” After his distinguished
military career ended Ken was called a “marketing genius” in the greeting card industry where he saved several companies from bankruptcy just as he saved the men under his command from death behind enemy lines. I recommend Wilt Browning’s
masterful book “Warrior” to all who love a great story.

Ken Simpson was the most unique man in business I ever encountered and I was involved in seven companies in my time. The common way to get ahead in business and climb the corporate ladder is by doing everything you can to please the people above you and by abusing the people under you.
Ken was the absolute opposite of that. He frequently abused the people above him on the corporate ladder and did everything he needed to do to make the people working for him happy. Let me put it this way Ken was the George Patton of the sales force. He didn’t take anything off anybody. He was a take-no-prisoners kind of guy working in the corporate world.
