George Eitel Hartman
Birth: Jan. 4, 1894
Lincoln County
Mississippi, USA
Death: Jul. 1, 1968

US Army Brigadier General. He received an education in Brookhaven, Mississippi and attended Southwestern University and Mississippi College before following his brother, Charles Dudley Hartman, in choosing a military career and entering the United States Army in 1917. As a quartermaster officer, he was senior organizer and chief of logistics for Gen. Douglas MacArthur's island-hopping campaigns in the Pacific during World War II. He served in the Quartermaster Corps until his retirement in 1954, when he moved to Washington, D.C. He was awarded the Legion of Merit in 1942, when he was a colonel, for successfully activating Fort Francis E. Warren, Wyoming, in time to receive incoming trainees during a period of severe below-zero temperature. His decorations also included the Army Commendation Medal, the Bronze Star Medal, World War I and II Victory Medals, the American Campaign Medal, the American Defense Medal, the Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal, the Philippine Liberation Star and the National Defense Service Medal. He was a member of the Army-Navy Country Club and Kappa Sigma Fraternity. Both Hartman brothers obtained the rank of Brigadier General by the time they retired from the army, and both were interred beside one another in Arlington National Cemetery at the end of their lives, with full military honors. They would later be joined at Arlington by their spouses and Charles' son, Lieutenant Colonel Charles Dudley Hartman, Jr. (Bio by Caroline Passmore) (bio by: Caroline Passmore)
