Uncle Walter was part of my growing up years. I remember him getting choked up when President Kennedy was assassinated. I remember his reporting during Apollo 11. When he spoke, I had tremendous confidence in what he was saying.

I remember when he retired to his boat, named "Assignment," and how I loved that when he retired, he said he'd be on Assignment.

I was never a fan of Dan Rather; I think I just missed Uncle Walter.

Edited to correct name of boat.
