Milton was born on March 2, 1921 in Walters, Oklahoma. He was the son of John Alla and Ollie Marie Stewart McGee.

He graduated from Blue High School, Walters, Oklahoma, in 1941. Milt had worked for the C.C.C. prior to his high school graduation.

An Oklahoma native, he rough-necked it in the oil fields before the war. Milt served in World War II as the radio operator on a B-24 bomber and would also man the plane’s top gun when the action got hot.

He and his crew were part of the 425th Bomb Squadron in the 308th Bomb Group stationed out of Kunming, China. He and his crew flew 69 missions, and all of his mates survived after being shot down over China.

Among his medals are the Air Medal with oak leaf clusters, the Purple Heart with oak leaf clusters and the Distinguished Flying Cross which was awarded by Gen. Claire Chenault.

On July 29, 1944, Milton and Edna Marie Hoffman were married in St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, Chicago. Edna preceded him in death on June 24, 2006.

Milt worked at Bendix for 32 years as a refrigeration and air-conditioning engineer.

He enjoyed hunting, farming, gardening, camping, fishing and spending time with his family, especially attending the sporting events of his children and grandchildren.

Milt was a member of Calvary Lutheran Church, Plymouth, where he was an Elder and Trustee. He also belonged to the V.F.W. and the National Rifle Association.
