​George Robert Hamilton

SPINDALE, North Carolina

Before he was drafted into the Army in 1942, George Hamilton was making furniture in High Point, N.C. He had left his family's small far to find work in closest city. It was his time in the Army, however, that taught him life lessons. He earned how to use the machine guns mounted on the trucks that the 320th Battalion took with them to Normandy. But more importantly, "we learned how to handle ourselves," he said. "I was a good soldier."
