737 Bomb Squadron Vet Recalls WW II Entry

World War II Veteran Lambert R. (Bobby) Walker recalls his entry into WW II.  Leaving Yale early, he was deployed to Europe where he flew in 35 missions as part of the 737 Bomb Squadron in the 454th Bombardment Group.  Walker, like all of his contemporaries, knew he was going to be in the War.  Leaving Yale University for New York City, he boarded an old German reparations transport to Europe. The trip took about 11 days and his convoy broke up, taking him up the Irish Sea to Liverpool. There he got an explosive entry into World War II.
