Description

The original is color pencil and pencil on 100lb Bristol smooth acid free 14x17 acid free paper sprayed with lacquer to reduce fading.

The airplane shown is that of Major General Edward B. Giller, one of the P-51�s he flew during WWII named after is wife �Millie Giller�. It is often mistaken as �The Millie P�; it is actually a lower case �g� and properly named �The Millie G�.

General Giller was born in Jacksonville, Ill., in 1918. He graduated from Kemper Military School, Mo., and from the University of Illinois with a Bachelor of Science degree in chemical engineering in 1940. After graduation he worked in Houston, Texas, for the Sinclair Oil Refining Company as a chemical engineer. In September 1941 he entered active military duty and entered flying school. He earned his pilot wings and commission as second lieutenant in April 1942 at Lubbock, Texas.

During World War II, he served in the European Theater of Operations with the 55th Fighter Group in the Eighth Air Force, and became commander of the 343d Fighter Squadron and later was Deputy Commander of the 55th Group. He participated in the campaigns of Air Offensive, Europe; Normandy; Northern France; Rhineland; Ardennes-Alsace; and Central Europe. As a fighter pilot, he completed 115 aerial combat missions, accumulated 465 combat hours in P-38 and P-51 aircraft, and is credited with three enemy aircraft destroyed.

His military decorations and awards include the Silver Star, Legion of Merit with oak leaf cluster, Distinguished Flying Cross with oak leaf cluster, Air Medal with 17 oak leaf clusters, Purple Heart, Distinguished Unit Citation Emblem, and the Croix de Guerre (France).
