Description: When Billy Miller was only sixteen years old, he made a decision that plunged him deep into the flow of history. He joined the Texas National Guard and was assigned to the 36th Infantry Division. The 36th crossed the Atlantic in early April of 1943, headed for Algiers in North Africa to assist the British in the North African campaign. The British regained control of the disputed territory by the time the 36th arrived, so Billy and his division began amphibious training and working with new weapons. On September 9, 1943, the 36th landed at Salerno, Italy and made history.
