MEET OUR GUEST SPEAKER: At the age of seventeen years old, Mr. David W. Mills enlisted into the Army on 6 October, 1952. Private Mills completed basic training at Camp Breckenridge, Kentucky and was sent to Korea. He reported for duty as a rifleman with F Company, 2nd Battalion, 15th Infantry, 3rd Infantry Division on 7 April, 1953. At the time of his arrival, the company was holding Outpost Harry, a forward position in front of the Main Line of Resistance, on a dominating hill near the North Korean village of Surang-Ni, across from the Iron Triangle. On 24 April at approximately 2230 hours, a massive enemy artillery bombardment hammered the Outpost, and was followed by a major Chinese assault in battalion strength. PVT Mills was wounded nine times in the fighting, twice in the head, six times in the legs, and once in the arm. PVT Mills left Outpost Harry in Chinese custody believing he was the last remaining American alive. His life was held in his communist captors’ hands, as they tried to decide whether to kill him or keep him prisoner. One word saved his life….”Christian.”
