General Sam Walker, an Army legend has endorsed the petition.
General Walker has the distinct claim to fame of being only one of two pairs
who rose to 4 star general
in the history of the U.S. Army
General Walker graduated as 'distinguished graduate' at West Point, Class of 1946, where he was a classmate of George S. Patton IV, later a Vietnam War general officer. General Walker is the son of General Walton Walker, who was killed in the Korean War.
General Walker held many positions during his Army career to include Commandant of Cadets at West Point as well as having been the Commanding General of the Third Infantry Division.
In addition, General Walker was the U.S. Military Commander Berlin, one of the most prestigious positions in the Army at the height of the Cold War.
General Walker also in retirement was Superintendent, Virginia Military Institute for nine years.

General Walker wrote a very nice letter on his four star official stationary and sent a full bio as well as enclosing his complete biography. I am very pleased to have the endorsement of this great warrior on the petition for Audie.
