Walter is the son of Sidney and Grace Mills.  He grew up on the Pine Ridge Reservation and is an enrolled Oglala Lakota.  He shares what his life was like in the 1940’s and 1950’s on the reservation.  We talk about the beginning of WWII and how Native Americans have a greater percentage per capita of enlisting into the service.  We will continue with Walt’s story part II next week.
