Victor was born July 3, 1920 in Kansas City, MO. He graduated from Paseo HS, and attended MU, University of Flordia, and the Kansas City Art Institute. After being inducted in the US Army in Washington D.C., Victor was sent for Army Air Corps training at the University of Florida, flight training school. The week prior to receiving his wings, the entire class was transferred to the infantry due to the sudden demand for foot soldiers for deployment with Army Co, 3rd Battalion. In Jan 1945 they arrived in Le Havre, France (Camp Lucky Strike) and entered combat in March 1945. His division’s campaigns were in France, Austria, and Germany, during his 55 days of hand-to-hand combat. Before receiving his honorable discharge on Feb 1, 1946, Victor endured a storm filled, 21 day trip across the Atlantic. He was awarded two Bronze Stars for campaigns in the Rhineland and Central Europe, the Combat Infantry Badge and the Good Conduct Medal.
Victor worked for the VA and CAA and retired from the National Weather Service in 1981 following a 40 year career, where he served as the Budget and Financial Officer. He was a lifetime member of the Eastgate Masonic Lodge, earned his Eagle Scout honors in 1936 and was a Warrior in the Tribe of Mic-O-Say (tribal name-Warrior Friendly Sky).
