Birth: Feb. 4, 1920
Death: Jun. 6, 1944

Charles Milliron was from Salem, Virginia, in Ronoake County. Charles worked at a Civilian Conservation Corps camp before the war and served in the Army. He was killed in the D-Day invasion of Normandy.

Survived by his parents, George and Nettie May Milliron; sisters, Dorothy Milliron Snyder, Pearl Flora Milliron Huff, Frances Lucille Milliron Bloomer; brothers Alfred and Roy. Buried at the Omaha Beach American Cemetery in Normandy.

Charles Milliron had been reported missing in action June 6; the next day, a soldier who was crossing the beach was forced by artillery fire into a foxhole. He noticed a dog tag in the hole and put it in his kit. Five years after the war, the man went through his belongings and found the dog tag; it belonged to Milliron and bore his mother's address. Says his friend Bob Slaughter: "The man mailed the tag to Mrs. Milliron with a cover letter telling how he had found the tag and hoped that her son was now home and doing OK." 
 
Note: Entered the service from Virginia.
