John,
My "uncle", actually Dad's cousin, was William Warren Walker, XO when your dad was first on the boat and CO for the last two patrols. We all would love to see any photos you'd like to share. Uncle Warren always was quite quiet about his service and patrols. He never thought they did enough because their tonnage sunk wasn't that great and always felt guilty about being caught on the surface and bombed.
Thanks
Bob Halvorson

Bonjour,
Pouvez vous, s'il vous plait, me mettre en relation avec un collectionneur d'enveloppes, ou une personne qui pourrait me procurer des documents sur le sous-marin.
Bien cordialement.
