Walt & Juanita Ramsey
Watch Now Button
Length: 9:46

Walt and Juanita Ramsey of Herrin have a lifetime of memories from more than 60-years of marriage, but there were two terrible months during the war that will always remind them of how precious their time together has been. Walt was an aerial gunner in World War Two while Juanita worked in a bomber factory in Michigan to be near her husband’s training bases before he was stationed overseas. As we’ll learn from their story, Walt was almost killed on a bombing raid and Juanita had to wait for weeks to learn whether he was dead or alive.
