He put our country in more danger than any other spy in the last 50 years.
Retired Navy Warrant Officer John A. Walker was said to have received upwards of $350,000 from 1968 to 1986 when he sold military secrets to the Soviets. That would be more than a million dollars in today's money.
The former Navy communications specialist, who left the service in 1976 and enlisted two family members and a friend into his spy ring, helped our enemies decipher thousands of encrypted Naval messages.
Then-Navy Secretary John Lehman estimated Walker's traitorous activities enabled the Soviets to know where U.S. submarines were located at all times. "Walker's espionage could have resulted in a huge loss of life in case of war," Lehman said.

John A. Walker has now punched his one-way ticket to hell.
The 77 year-old traitor died last week at the federal prison hospital in Butner, N.C. The cause of death was not officially released. Due to "privacy" reasons, perhaps.
That doesn't matter, however, since MCC has ways of finding things out.
Traitor Walker croaked from a most appropriate cause. Stage four throat cancer.
