Walton joined the military in the U.S. Army Intelligence Corps, supervising security at aircraft plants and prisoner of war camps. In this position he served at Fort Douglas in Salt Lake City, Utah. He eventually reached the rank of Captain.

It's always possible that the entry has been sanitized, but I'd have to see evidence before I'll believe the bit about the Japanese internment camp.

I read it on a lot of conspiracy websites but didn't believe it till I saw it on the wiki a few days ago for myself. I can see that it's no longer there. Perhaps I was mistaken or it was challenged and removed. Can't seem to find a credible source for it anymore.
You know why single men live longer than married men? Because they want to.

FTC lets Walmart off the hook for patriotic lies :laugh:
MADE IN AMERICA doesn't always mean that a product was actually manufactured in the USA, especially at Wally World!!!

Wal-Mart's Robot Cart Could Help Do Your Shopping For You
I could see robot carts gathering items in a warehouse, but not alongside human shoppers at a regular store. The idea of robots flipping burgers isn't a bad one, especially with minimum wages going so high. It's almost as if increasing the minimum wage was a planned scam to screw humans out of jobs and to increase incentive for companies to design robots that can replace human workers.

Video Captures Fireworks Exploding inside Arizona Walmart
There is a time and place for everything, but this was neither. As a result two guys, if caught, might wind up facing serious criminal charges.

twister: Weird people and Walmart go together like peanut butter and jelly, bacon and eggs, milk and cookies, fish and chips, soup and salad, mops and buckets, salt and pepper, and liver and onions! It's the way things were meant to be!
