Although I never knew your parents or brother, I sure know that he raised some very strong and wonderful women and must have been an inspiring presence in your family. I'm sorry for your loss and send you the most embracing thoughts.

A useful thing, this internet. It says of U.S. surnames ‘Miller' ranks sixth. It says ‘Grier' is of Scottish-English origin and means ‘watchful, alert, vigilant' and also that it is not a terribly popular name. It says there are 8,706,394 World War II enlistment records, but that there was only one(1) Grier Miller.

Grier enlisted in Camden, New Jersey on December 28, 1942. A resident of Gloucester County, Grier was 21 years old at the time of his enlistment. At that time he had two years of college and listed his occupation as radio operator.

From my mother Shirley Holmes I know that prior to his enlistment Grier was a radio operator in the merchant marine. The calendar suggests he had ample time in 1942 to ply his trade at a time when U-boats were sinking ships all the time in the Caribbean and off Cape Hatteras and Atlantic City. I bet it was a comfort to nervous crews to have such a watchful, alert and vigilant shipmate.

Grier, pardon, Mr. Miller was someone I met only a handful of times at the odd family gathering. I wish I had known him better. You've got to respect someone who thinks braving shot and shell in the Army will a nice change of pace from being torpedoed.

My sympathies and respect to the family.
