I'm happy for him, and hopefully his family will not take advantage of this new found 'fame' and good fortune, but will support him and be the encouragement he needs. Also wish I knew how to successfully get my daughters music viewed a LOT on YouTube without paying someone to help make it viral...anyone want to check out her music, she writes and sings...its under WilliamsFam47167

Let's hope the taxpayers, if the children received any benefits, get reimbursement from him if he makes any money.

He did seem really sincere, and they let him go on, and he made entire show, run late. Pretty amazing, they would not dare, cut him off, as he is already SO popular.
Dude is also doing Kimmel, and possibly Leno tonight.
But, he is a vet, and this is the kind of stuff that can still happen in America, so this is going to have "major legs" Great for him.

Ummm TMZ thank you for trying to stir sh!!+ but we already knew, he spoke about it yesterday. It always has to be about sensationalism for you lot. Run Ted, Run.

I think it's a wonderful story. Hard luck vet (yes due to his own bad ways) trying to get his life together. He seems like a man who has lived a hard life and realizes the wrongs he has committed and wants to get his life together. You seriously can't fault him for wanting that.
What I am concerned with is that the sudden fame will be overwhelming and may push him back into drugs & drink. Sounds like the Today show has given him access to a counselor, yay for them, that was wonderful.
Good luck Ted Williams, keep your head on straight, stay away from trouble and you can have an awesome life.

Looks homeless, will always have that mentality. He took that lifestlye cause it got him off the hook. Howard Stein called him a 'hoax', I agrees. Your 15 minutes are up, go back to Ohio, BYE!!!!!!

Mr. Williams is so overwhelmed by people's generosity right now. There will be many pressures that come with his fame. I pray he finds a good minister that can help guide him through, what will no doubt be, the many temptatons that come his way.

He's homeless because he can't afford so much child support. He got so underwater, he just gave up. Instead of being reasonable, they will cream him on the back child support and he'll be back on the street with noone better off.
