Happy Birthday to A Brave American Soldier
By: Fred  McMillan

My father, David L. McMillan turned 86 years of age on Sunday (June 26th).

Born & raised in Lumberton North Carolina, located in Robeson County, Mr. McMillan was the middle son, and seventh child in a family of twelve. Two other brothers also served in WWII, and were honorably discharged after the war. Mr. McMillan enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1942, and retired at the rank of Master Sergeant in 1967. In WWII, he fought in the battle

of Salerno, in Italy, as a member of the 92nd Division. While in Italy, her fought in many other smaller battles, and was wounded in action. For this, he received the purple heart (see attached picture). His Buffalo Unit later joined up with the 144th, in Germany, under General Patton. Patton also commanded the 3rd Army. Sergeant McMillan participated in the Berlin Air Lift, while under Patton’s command.

After WWII, Sergeant McMillan returned to the U.S., where he married and was stationed at Ft. Lewis, Fort Ord, and Fort Bragg, N.C.

In 1952, Sergeant McMillan was stationed in Seoul Korea, serving in the Cavalry. While in Korea, he patrolled the always tenuous 49th parallel during a very intense part of that war. After serving two tours of Duty in Korea, Master Sergeant McMillan returned to the states, and was assigned to Special Services. He returned to Korea in 1964, where he served for 18 months. Sergeant McMillan finally retired in 1967, when it appeared that he might be sent to Vietnam. Sergeant McMillan remarked that “three wars just seemed unlucky to me”.

Mr. McMillan now resides in Massachusetts, a half mile from his son Fred. He keeps his numerous war medals in his sock drawer, including conduct medals, Bronze Star, and a dozen or more campaign ribbon bars. He is a quiet, unassuming hero, who loves his family, God, and his country. He has asked me to frame his “Brave Soldier” certificate, which he was thrilled to receive. His comment about the special edition Map Knife, which he is holding in the pictures, was “you sure could do a lot with this knife. It’s a beauty!” The first task he used the knife for? Cracking open walnuts and hickory nuts, both of which he loves.

To Kill an American
You probably missed it in the rush of news last week, but there was actually a report that someone in Pakistan had published in a newspaper an offer of a reward to anyone who killed an American, any American.
So an Australian dentist wrote an editorial the following day to let everyone know what an American is so they would know when they found one. (Good one, mate!!!!)
 An American is English, or French, or Italian, Irish, German, Spanish, Polish, Russian or Greek. An American may also be Canadian, Mexican, African, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Australian, Iranian, Asian, or Arab, or Pakistani or Afghan.
An American may also be a Comanche, Cherokee, Osage, Blackfoot, Navaho, Apache, Seminole or one of the many other tribes known as Native Americans.
An American is Christian, or he could be Jewish, or Buddhist, or Muslim. In fact, there are more Muslims in America than in Afghanistan . The only difference is that in America they are free to worship as each of them chooses.
An American is also free to believe in no religion. For that he will answer only to God, not to the government, or to armed thugs claiming to speak for the government and for God.
An American lives in the most prosperous land in the history of the world. The root of that prosperity can be found in the Declaration of Independence , which recognizes the God given right of each person to the pursuit of happiness.
An American is generous. Americans have helped out just about every other nation in the world in their time of need, never asking a thing in return.
When Afghanistan was over-run by the Soviet army 20 years ago, Americans came with arms and supplies to enable the people to win back their country! As of the morning of September 11, Americans had given more than any other nation to the poor in Afghanistan.
Americans welcome the best of everything...the best products, the best books, the best music, the best food, the best services.
But they also welcome the least.
The national symbol of America , The Statue of Liberty , welcomes your tired and your poor, the wretched refuse of your teeming shores, the homeless, tempest tossed. These in fact are the people who built America .
Some of them were working in the Twin Towers the morning of September 11, 2001 earning a better life for their families. It's been told that the World Trade Center victims were from at least 30 different countries, cultures, and first languages, including those that aided and abetted the terrorists.
So you can try to kill an American if you must. Hitler did. So did General Tojo, and Stalin, and Mao Tse-Tung, and other blood-thirsty tyrants in the world. But, in doing so you would just be killing yourself. Because Americans are not a particular people from a particular place. They are the embodiment of the human spirit of freedom.
