Stories

Born on September 11, 1945 Henson Frank Walker was a gift for his young parents in the small town of American Fork, Utah. Always a happy youngster, H. Frank had plenty of opportunities to have fun with his brothers and sister. Baptized a member of the LDS church on 27 September 1953, Frank enjoyed the chances he had to attend church. Attending Lindon Elementary as a youth, Frank went on to graduate from Pleasant Grove High School in 1963. Soon after Frank enrolled and then graduated from Utah Technical College in 1964. Taking time to serve his God, Frank went to England and served as a missionary in the Northeast British Mission from 1964-1966. Returning honorably from his mission Frank enrolled at Brigham Young University to continue his academic education. In May of 1968 Frank entered the Army and began his basic training. Upon finishing his training, he returned home and married Jeanette Wood of Pleasant Grove on September 18, 1968. Less than one month later, Frank began his first and only tour of duty in Vietnam. A specialist with the 176th Light Infantry, Frank was near Quang Tin, South Vietnam on June 13, 1969. While on a night patrol, his squad took hostile fire. A fight ensued and Frank was a ground casualty of small arms fire. Franks body was taken to Utah where it was buried in the Pleasant Grove Cemetery. *Source: http://memorialhall.byu.edu/vietnam/hwalker.html

Just a minor correction to the biograpy : "Runt" Walker served proudly with "A" co, 3rd Bn/21 Inf of the 196th LIB - not the 173rd as indicated. The nickname was given to him due to his relatively short stature but he was one of the most respected members of the company. He was a 1st ckass soldier and has been missed greatly.
