D-DAY: GUSTAVE "JOE" MILTZ
Typescript describing the landing and quoting Miltz, who has signed with a "God Bless America."
Typescript signed: "'God Bless America'/Gustave 'Joe' Miltz", 1 page, 8½x11. Typescript titled "D-Day". Four paragraphs about the invasion, the final two devoted to the signer: "The incredibly loud shelling is something that Army Signal Corps Sgt. Gustave 'Joe' Miltz will never forget. 'The sound was deafening. The Germans had started sending off their big 88s, huge artillery shells that began being lobbed at us. I looked up, and in the air, there were hundreds of planes. I was worried about friendly fire, which now is a familiar phrase. It was scary. I was hopped up. The adrenaline was flowing. You get caught up in the whole gosh-darned thing, with the time, the situation. Your mind is racing. Then they give the order and you GO!" The D-Day landings, conducted by US, British and Canadian troops on the beaches of Normandy on June 6, 1944 incurred heavy casualties, but were to prove decisive in breaking the German hold on France and enabling a drive across France and the Low Countries to assault Germany itself. On the 50th anniversary of that landmark event, Gustave Joseph Miltz (1922-2004) of Los Alamitos, California was one of several veterans sharing his memories of that day. Fine condition.
