Saying Farewell to Chuck Walker

It is with great sadness we offer our deepest condolences to the family of Colonel Charles “Chuck” L. Walker who folded his wings on June 16th in Dallas, Texas.

During World War II, whilst he was stationed in the UK with the 445th Bomb Group, United States Army Air Force, at the village of Tibenham, Norfolk, Colonel Walker piloted 35 bombing missions over Nazi Germany in the B-24 ‘Liberator’.

After years of service and flying many successful missions, Colonel Walker became very active in keeping the memory and legacy of all those who had given their lives during the war. As a President of the 2nd Air Division Association, and Governor of the 2nd Air Division Memorial Trust, Colonel Walker, well in to his 90s participated in events, traveling across the pond yearly to help all those remember the past and never forget the service of those we lost. We salute you for your service and dedication. May you rest in peace.
