Lietuenant Colonel Frank Walker was born in Rock Hill, S.C. He reported to his assignment in the Republic of South Vietnam as an OH-6A Scout Pilot in November 1971.
Walker talks about the first time he flew in Vietnam, and shares a humbling story about the courage of his crew members. In regard to his retirement, he says, "I didn’t worry about what was in the past. I worried about what was coming up. And I guess I can say I made lemonade out of my lemons."
The Vietnam War, a film by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, premiered on September 17 on South Carolina ETV. Click here to view more stories.
