Captain John Walker

Postby Niner Alpha » Sun Mar 15, 2015 8:42 pm

Another memory for the Wall.

Capt John Walker was the communications officer for Headquarters Company. Good man and cool officer. He died when his driver swerved to miss a Vietnamese boy who walked in front of the jeep. The short wheelbase and low center of gravity caused the jeep to flip on its top. Captain Walker died instantly from a broken neck. It was a sad day for HHC when we learned of it.
