Milton Amundson 

Officer Training Follows Ranger's Pacific Service
Staff Sergeant Milton Amundson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Amundson, Dallas, made a short visit with his parents en route to Georgia, after being accepted for officer's training.

He had previously qualified and, thus, was released from the Pacific area, where he was serving.

Staff Sergeant Amundson entered the service on January 23, 1940 and received his basic training at Fort Ord, CA. He was sent overseas in April 1943 and took part in the battles for Attu and the Marshall Islands. He later became an instructor of Ranger combat tactics.

When President Franklin Roosevelt was in Hawaii, the officer candidate was one of those who paraded before him with the Seventh Army.

He was awarded the Marksman and Good Conduct Medals and wears the Distinguished Unit Badge for extraordinary achievement.

Amundson is a nephew of Carl Johnson of Eau Claire, Mrs. Robert Peterson of Colfax, and Mrs. Paul McGilton of Menomonie.
