George T. Graves

Ennis, Texas

George Graves was a staff sergeant in the U.S. Army during World War II.  He entered the army in 1942 training in Arkansas, Mississippi and California.  He served on New Zealand, New Caledonia, New Georgia, Guadalcanal and Luzon.

George was awarded the Southwest Pacific Campaign Ribbon, Combat Infantryman Badge and Medical Citation.

At eighty-eight-years, George is retired.  He enjoys coffee with friends at the Dairy Queen.  He enjoys quoting from the writings of old friends like Spinoza and Cicero.  He is driven far from boredom and the mundane by an unquenchable thirst for knowledge.  He is blessed, and he has always been blessed with a scholar's mind and the mechanism of total recall.
