Kentuckiana's Greatest Generation - Weldon Walker

My grandfather started out in the Army and then switched to the early Air Force, then known as the Army Air Corps.

He marched across Europe twice, once developing a severe infection, and spending time in a Frence hospital.

After the war, and the suicides of Germany's leaders, he was a personal guard for Goering's wife and children.

He then returned home to his young wife and started a great family, of whom he remains the proud patriarch.
