Episode 12 - Too Young To Fight

With war waging in Europe during the fall of 1918, 16 year old Walt Disney wanted to join the fight. He was turned away however by the American Armed Services because of his age. Walt was so determined to participate though that he resorted to some trickery and even forgery to insert himself into the war effort. We discuss all this and more on this episode of The Uncle Walt Podcast.
