George Mills Battle of the Bulge..

Post by caappy » Tue Jul 16, 2019 12:41 pm

George Mills arrived on Omaha Beach a few weeks after D-Day and went on to fight in several major battles, including the Battle of the Bulge. The Alabama man, now 98, was captured, became a prisoner of war and was forced by the Germans to march for months across Europe.
“It was a sobering day,” Mills said, remembering his landing. “When that ramp falls, you’ve been trained to scatter as quickly as you can.”
“That’s when the fright sets in,” he said.
Sitting in a wheelchair near where world leaders will speak on Thursday. As military planes – both modern and World War II-era – flew overhead, Mills sat under a U.S. flag that was lowered as a bugle call fell over a growing group of onlookers.
Mills said he is concerned the youngest generation may not learn from what anchorman Tom Brokaw dubbed the Greatest Generation.
“All these young children, one of these days are going to have to fight a war,” Mills predicted. “And they need to really know what happened in World War II, because it’s going to face them someday.”

He was assigned to Company E, 109th Inf, 28th Div of Patton's 3rd Army from the beach to Paris and then he was with the 1st Army under Gen Courtney Hodges at the Battle of the Bulge.
