"Hello, my name is William C. (BILL) Warwick. The place of my birth is Hamlet, NC The date of my birth is January 15, 1929. I retired from NC public education December 17, 1993 having completed 30 years service; 26 of which were served in Robeson County.

My great-greats settled in Robeson County some time before the American Revolution…I have been told about 1737. My grandfather, John Lawrence Warwick, migrated to Hamlet in 1898, after being employed by the Seaboard Airline Railroad. Consequently, I became one of the second generation of Warwick’s born in Hamlet.

My mother’s parents were farmers in the Maxton area for more years than I care to remember so she also was a native of Robeson County. I suppose from my ancestral lineage and from my employment history I would not be too far out of line to proclaim that I to am a native son of Robeson county. The best day of my life was when my wife, Elizabeth, a native of Robeson County, accepted my marriage proposal.

My Navy service is well covered in a book which I have written, “A Sailor Comes Home”. In that book I wrote about my experiences in two bloody wars (i e. the communist revolution in China 1948-49 and the Korean War 1950-51). Also I wrote about my long, long struggle with Post Traumatic Syndrome (PTS), which was caused by those wars. And now I’m happy to report that my PTS has slowly begun to improve, since I have, so to speak, got it out through writing a book."
