General Omar Bradley

The photo shows Gen Bradley on the parade ground in 1979, the time of our 20th reunion. I see Russ Street lurking in the background on the left. Gen Bradley and his wife attended the dinner dance reception in Washington Hall that evening and kindly met with some members of our class. Pat and I had the opportunity to shake his hand and had a nice little chat with him. He died two years later in 1981.

I also remember him at a 1960s AUSA convention in DC in his earlier years, when he was still fit and functional, and walking virtually behind him to
several events. As you know he maintained an office in the Pentagon Secretarial E Ring section while we were assigned to the Army Staff in the late 70s.

I'm also attaching another photo that was taken from my uncle's WWII photo album that shows Gen Bradley with Eisenhower, Patton, and LTC Creighton Abrams, Patton's lead tank battalion commander, at the liberation of Buchenwald in April 1945. My uncle, Edward Milos, was MSgt in Patton's Third Army and is in the photo. There is a similar wider version of this photo in the Holocaust Museum in DC.
