served with him in the 82nd Airborn
See you again
I remember Walter as "Chip". He was my assistant gunner in our squad. Everyone carried ammo for the M60. Chips bravery came into play in every firefight. He had to expose himself to enemy fire to retrieve the ammo for the machine gun. We had a lot of great times in the 82nd Airborne. The 82nd was one of the first unit to leave Nam.We did not have enough time in country to come home with the 82nd Airborne. We were all transfered to differnt outfits. Shortly after I learned of Chip's death. Hope to see you again when my adventure starts on the other side. Always. Mark

teenage years
How I remember his smile,it seems like yesterday that I recieved a letter from my mother (I was also over seas)that my friend Walter was killed.I wrote to the family sending my sympathy,but never recieved a responce.I guess my letter also being in an air mail envelope may have been just put aside.Over the years I guess I should have gone to see the family but I could not,so to the Andrews family Mr and Mrs and Patty and anyone I dont remember Im deeply sorry for your loss and I am very sorry I never came to see you ,Russ

  Served together
We first met in the 82nd airborne unit. I carried the M60 and Chip was the assist. gunner. We were transfered to different units when the 82nd was deployed back to the states. Shortly after I heard of Chip's death. Anyone who knew Chip please contact me. The pic is myself in the middle T.Hruby on the L and Chip on my R.

  We were neighbors on Church St
Walter and his family lived a few houses away from my family. When I fell off my bike and broke my front tooth, Walter came out from his house, picked me up and brought me home.

He will always be remembered.
