Andrew Miller



Fading light dims the sight,
And a star gems the sky,
    Gleaming bright.
From afar drawing nigh,    
    Falls the night.

Day is done, gone the sun,
From the lake, From the hills,
    From the sky.
All is well, safel
y rest,
    God is nigh.

Then good night, Peaceful night,
Till the light of the dawn
    Shineth bright,
God is near, do not fear,
  Friend, good night.

Buried at A.B.M.C. Lorraine

When a crossfire pinned down his unit Staff Sergeant Miller ordered his men to cover while he went forward alone, entered a building and forced five Germans to surrender. He then took the second gun single-handedly by hurling grenades, killing two, wounding three, and taking two prisoners. The next day when his platoon retired, he fearlessly remained behind and exchanged bursts with a German machinegun until he silenced the enemy weapon. On November 19 he led an attack on large enemy barracks. Covered by his squad, he crawled through a window and captured six riflemen. The entire company then followed through the window and took 75 prisoners. Later he volunteered to capture Gestapo officers who were preventing the surrender of German troops in another building. Confronted by four armed agents, he persuaded them to surrender. The next morning he assumed the task of destroying a well-placed machinegun. Knocked down by a grenade as he climbed a stairway he pressed on to find an advantageous spot from which to fire his bazooka. The following day, in Metz, he captured 12 more prisoners and silenced an enemy machinegun in advance of his company's position. On November 29 he was killed leading his men in a daring advance.
