As a 33-year veteran of the military that included service in World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War, Johnny Mills can tell many stories of places he traveled, wars fought and friends made and lost. But Mills is a man of few words when it comes to talking about his war-time experiences.
Mills was born April 19, 1923 to the late Roosevelt and Octavia Mills. He grew up in Pageland and attended area schools. He and his wife of 63 years, Verla are the parents of three children.
