Lieutenant (jr. grade) Layher enlisted in the Navy in 1939 and served until 1945 in the VP-12, AVG P-40, S-44. Interviewed by Judy Walker on Mar 8, 2006, Layher talked about military experiences in the Second World War. The 2005 Kansas Legislature passed a bill funding the WWII Veterans Oral History grant program. This transcript is from one of the nine community institutions that received these grants. The transcript from the interview is presented here; the original video copy of the interview is available through the Ellis County Historical Society (Hays) and through the Kansas State Historical Society.
