Birthday SGT. David L McMillan
Happy Birthday to A Brave
By: Fred McMillan
father, David L. McMillan turned 86 years of age on Sunday (June 26th).
Born & raised in Lumberton North Carolina, located in
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
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
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
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.

Kill an American |
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.
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!!!!)
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
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.
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

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.
