Listen to Milton's Oral Interview with the National World War II Museum

He also had an opportunity to go on a Talon's Out flight. The week before he went on that flight to the WWII monument on Washington, D.C., we found all the letters he had written home to his parents. Because he was wounded in WWII, all his belongings and letters his parents wrote to him were lost when he was evacuated. There was one letter that he eventually received from his mother. She had sent it new year's day 1945, but it never reached him overseas. This letter is featured in this video done by Talon's Out. They presented him with this letter during roll call on the way home from the trip.
