Presented By Mr. Bill Martin

Fighter pilot William C. Lambert, born in Ironton, Ohio, in 1894, ended World War I as America’s second-leading Ace with 22 confirmed victories. Only Eddie Rickenbacker, another “buckeye,” scored more with 26.Yet, Lambert chose to live in obscurity, his record not discovered for nearly five decades. Bill Martin was a personal friend of Col. Lambert and will offer some insight regarding this pilot’s remarkable life.
