This page is dedicated to Fred Migliori


 



    Fred Migliori enlisted into the the Army's National Guard on February 17th 1941 from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After basic training he was assigned to the 108th Field Artillery Regiment*. In February of 1941 the 108th F.A. regiment was activated for one year under a call up for the national emergency as declared by President Roosevelt. After the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, war came and the 12 month activation became indefinite. In 1942, the regiment was split*. It was probably around this time Fred voluntered to become a paratrooper. Fred served with the 456th Parachute Field Artillery Battalion until he was discharged October 8th 1945.
