October 23, 2017 - Posted in Palmetto Scene by Kaitlyn Cannon

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.
