Walter was inducted into the Army 27-MAR 1943 at Jefferson Barracks. Walter served in the 110th Anti-aircraft Artillery, Battery C, 1st Army. He would attend basic training in Camp Edwards Massachusetts.
Walter and the rest of the men thought that since they were assigned to 90 mm anti-aircraft guns, they would be a pretty safe unit. They would soon learn differently! On 7-JUN 1944, they would land on Omaha Beach.
