Walter West

U.S. Army Aircorp



Tuesday, September 17th, 2002
Walter West had a much different experience than most men had during the Second World War. After training in the United States, Walt was sent to Greenland, 300 miles above the Arctic Circle. He spent one year of Isolated Duty on Greenland from 1945 to 1946. During the time he spent in the Arctic Outpost, Walt became very interested in the culture of the Natives and since the end of the War, has gone back to Greenland many times. He will share a pictorial history of experiences.
