If any family member or friends reads this blog, please contact me as I am looking for pictures and personal stories about this brave man. One of Luis Walton’s best Friend Walt Titchenell made it his life’s mission to find the family of Louis Walton. In 2011 he made contact with Daniel Walton Louis’s youngest.  In May of 2012, Daniel  attended “Zit” dedication at the Motts Museum. The big day came when in October of 2012 not only Daniel Walton showed up but so did his brother, Richard and his two sisters Diane and Kathleen attended the Bullwhip Squadron Reunion at Fort Hood, Texas. At the same time the children of Billy Nave, Teri and William were at the reunion. This completed Walt’s mission.

Richard Walton forwarded me some photographs for inclusion on this site. I can not thank them enough.
