George was born in 1926 in New York city. He was drafted and enlisted on November 16th, 1944, entering service from New York city. After training, he joined the Medical Detachment as part of the 47th Infantry Regiment. George became a Staff Sergeant and fought during the Battle of the Bulge. He also was at the Dachau concentration camp right after it was liberated.

After the war George owned a flower shop in Manhattan. Every year he donated flowers for the Ninth Infantry Division for the Veteran’s Day Parade. For this he received a wonderful “Thank You Buddy” plaque from the Ninth Infantry Division Association, the Association of which he was a life member.

George passed away in January 1998. He will never be forgotten.
