Emile Walker Sr.

My maternal great Uncle Emile Walker was born on May 24 1894 in Bromley Baldwin County, Alabama. He was the eldest child of Dock Walker and his first wife Lillie Rauzy Walker. June 5th 1917 at 23 years old, Emile was drafted into the Army by November 30th 1917 he was stationed at his first training Camp. Camp Gordon located in Chamblee, Georgia. Emile was enlisted into the military and training at Camp Gordon in Chamblee Georgia. By August 22nd 1918 Emile was stationed at Camp Taylor in Louisville Kentucky and worked as a laborer. For a time Camp Taylor was America’s largest military training camp, housing 47,500 men at one time. After WWI most if the camp was dismantled. Emile Walker is part of my history.
