Alex Green Miller

Sergeant 1st Class, U. S. Army

Silver Star

Headquarters, 82d Airborne Division, General Orders No. 75 (May 22, 1945)
The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress July 9, 1918, takes pleasure in presenting the Silver Star to Sergeant Alex G. Miller (ASN: 18005495), United States Army, for gallantry in action while serving with 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 82d Airborne Division, in action on 6 - 7 April 1945, at ****, Germany.
Sergeant Miller dashed through a hail of small arms fire into enemy lines where he killed and wounded an unknown number of German soldiers and temporarily disorganized a counterattack. When his squad was eventually cut off from the rest of the company by overwhelming numbers of the enemy, he directed his men through a break in the enemy lines and covered them with his accurate rifle fire. He then crawled back into enemy territory to search for one of his missing squad members.
His steadfast devotion to duty, and fighting spirit inspired all with him and are in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States Army.
