Sometime between 1877 and 1881 George moved to Woburn, Ma. with his family. He enlisted in the 12th U.S. Infantry in 1889 to fight out west in the Sioux Indian Campaign. He served for twenty-two years and in six wars. He served out West, then in the Philippines, and Cuba, then China during the Boxer Rebellion. He then went to the Mexican Border fighting the armies of Pancho Villa. He was instrumental in capturing the notorious Moro leader Faustino Alban. He then went back to the Philippines until he retired in 1908. In 1917 WW1 broke out and George wanted back in. At the age of 48 he was well over the age limit, but managed to get a commission and went in. He was killed in action on October 7, 1918. Among his many decorations was the Distinguished Service Cross, which is second only to the Medal of Honor.
