BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

Butler Buchanan Miltonberger was born on August 31, 1897, at North Platte, Nebraska. Ira Miltonberger, his father, was a former Lincoln County sheriff.

B. B. Miltonberger graduated from North Platte High School in 1916 and began his military service as a private in June 1916, when the National Guard was mobilized during the Mexican border dispute. During World War I, Miltonberger fought with the 4th division in the Argonne, returning to the United States as a First Sergeant. As a civilian, he worked in North Platte as a postman. He also engaged in bridge building, surveying and road construction work. On May 12, 1923, he was commissioned a First Lieutenant, and a year later was promoted to Captain. He commanded Company "D" of the 134th Infantry Regiment. From then until May of 1944, Miltonberger trained his regiment for combat at Ford Ord and Camp Luis Obispo, California; Camp Rucker, Alabama; and Camp Butler, North Carolina.

In May of 1944, Miltonberger, known to his friends as "Butts," led his men overseas as Regimental Commander. With the regimental motto in mind, "All hell can't stop us," he led his troops (mostly Nebraskans) through eighteen months of service at St Lo, Vire, Mortain, Mortargis, Nancy, Morhange, Sarreguemines, Bastogne, Alsace, Venlo, Geilenkirchen, and the Elbe River. In 1945, Miltonberger was promoted to Assistant Commander of the 35th Division. When the war ended, he was assigned to special duty with the War Department personnel section. He was among an elite group of officers who accompanied Eisenhower during his welcome home ticker tape parades in New York City, Washington, and Kansas City. Miltonberger remained close friends with Eisenhower until the latter's death in 1964. In 1946, President Truman nominated Miltonberger to be Chief of the National Guard Bureau with the rank of Major General. He was confirmed by the Senate on February 1, 1946, but he was forced to retire due to ill health on August 1, 1947.

During his military career he distinguished himself by earning the Combat Infantryman's Badge; the Mexican Border Campaign Ribbon (1916-1917); the Victory Medal with one Bronze Star (World War I); Occupation of Germany Ribbons (World Wars I and II); an American Defense Ribbon; a European Theater Ribbon with five Bronze Stars; a Victory Ribbon (World War II); and the French Legion of Honor; the French Croix De Guerre with Palm and Fourraguerre; the Netherlands Order of Orange-Nassau; the Luxembourg Croix de Guerre; and the United States Distinguished Service Medal (1947).

After his retirement, he divided his time between his family home in North Platte, and Lincoln where he was a member of the State Engineering staff. On March 23, 1977, at the age of 79, Miltonberger died relatively obscurely at his lakeside cabin outside of North Platte. He was survived by three children and his second wife, Caroline.

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE

The Miltonberger Collection consists of thirteen boxes, two oversize drawers, and two oversized items arranged in fourteen subgroups: 1) Maps; 2) S-3 Material; 3) G-3 Material; 4) S-2 Material; 5) G-2 Material; 6) G-4 Material; 7) 134th Unit Journal; 8) Admission and Disposition Reports; 9) Aid Station Reports; 10) Award Recommendations; 11) Personnel Rosters; 12) Training Pamphlets; 13) Personal Material; and 14) Miscellany. This collection relates to the 134th Infantry Regiment of the 35th Division, primarily between July 1944, and September 1945. As commander of the 134th Infantry, Miltonberger served and maintained records dealing with troop movements, battle plans, casualties, battle recollections, accounts of personal valor, and the history of the 134th in the European theater during World War II.

Subgroup 1 consists of military topographical maps from France and Central Europe. A map index denotes the use and series of the maps and where maps start and end in the military numbering system. Map scales vary from 1:300,000; 1:200,000;p 1:100,000; 1:50,000; 1:25,000; 1:15,000; 1:12,500, and 1:10,000. Included are assault and aerial photo maps used to verify and enhance older maps. All maps from this subgroup are shelved in oversize drawer 67.

S-3 documents comprise Subgroup 2. The S-3 officer was in charge of operations and training. The secret daily overlays sent to the S-3 should be used in conjunction with the maps in Subgroup 1. Each S-3 overlay shows the date, order number, time frame in which the order is to be carried out, map name, and number and size to which each overlay corresponds. Additional information is given about the unit's boundary line of operation, written orders, and daily operations. Map overlays are located in oversize drawer 064.

This subgroup also contains a daily account of the 134th unit activities as reported by the S-3. With some entries made ten to thirty minutes apart, this journal offers a precise record of the 134th activities. Also, of particular interest in Subgroup 2 are the "Battle Experience" reports. Sent from other units, these reports describe German strategies and Allied tactics.

Subgroup 3 is comprised of G-3 material. The G-3 is the Assistant Chief of Staff in charge of a unit's operation. The information provided in each G-3 report is similar to that found in the S-3 overlays described in Subgroup 2. However, assignments carried out by the G-3 differed based upon the overall battle plan of the unit. These reports reflect those differentiations.

Subgroup 4 consists of S-2 records. The S-2 was in charge of collecting and interpreting battalion-level intelligence data. Battalion overlays, tactical interrogation reports, daily activity reports, C.I.C. reports, captured papers, reports on captured equipment and intelligence reports are included in this subgroup. Of particular interest are the overlays, containing battalion orders and the tactical interrogation reports of enemy activity. One account discusses the murder of a priest by a German officer.

The records of the G-2 section can be found in Subgroup 5. The G-2 was responsible for intelligence. Included are press releases issued during the 134th Infantry's training in Prescott, Arkansas, and Winnfield and Mansfield, Louisiana. These reports describe training and the level of military readiness of the National Guard prior to World War II. Of particular interest is a press release designated as BULLETIN 32 in which General Lear states that "there may be faults in our (current) military system." This document has "not for release" written across it.

Subgroup 6 contains G-4 material. The G-4 was responsible for supply and support. One file, dated April 1945, comprises this Subgroup. The remaining G-4 reports are missing from the collection.

Subgroup 7 consists of the 134th Unit Journal kept between July and December 1944. Comparable to the S-3 Journal of Subgroup 2, the Unit Journal gives a detailed account of battles, orders, and situations and placement of troops of the 134th Infantry Regiment.

Subgroup 8 contains six series of Admission and Disposition Reports. Included are K.I.A. (Killed in Action) reports; M.I.A. (Missing in Action) reports; D.O.W. (Died of Wounds) reports; Battle Casualty reports; Non-Battle Casualty reports; and Burial List reports. The Killed-in-Action series contains descriptions of deaths of 134th Infantry Soldiers. Missing from this series is folder for "I." Folder 23 contains the hometowns and addresses of the dead. The Battle Casualty Reports series contains cumulative reports from one period of operation or one series of battles dating from July of 1944 to August of 1945. The miscellany file of this series includes a report of an American soldier found murdered while on leave. The Missing-in-Action reports cover July of 1944 to August of 1945. Series 4 and 5 include cumulative K.I.A., M.I.A., and D.O.W. reports which note the time and place of death. The Non-Battle Casualty Reports describe accidents and related injuries. The Burial Lists record the burial places of the troops of the 134th killed in action.

Subgroup 9 contains Daily Regimental, 1st Battalion, 2nd Battalion, 3rd Battalion and 110th Medical Battalion Aid Station Reports. These reports describe injuries suffered and treatment received.

Subgroup 10 contains Award Recommendations. Included are papers relating to Unit Citations, Congressional Medal of Honor recipients, Silver Star, Distinguished Service Cross, Bronze Star Medal with Oak Leaf Cluster, Bronze Star, Soldier Medal and Commendation recommendations. Write-ups accompanying the recommendations include personal and eye-witness accounts. These reports describe individual acts of heroism. Many awards written up in this Subgroup were presented posthumously.

Subgroup 11 contains Personnel Rosters. Series 1 consists of a list of officers of the 35th Division on January 18, 1941. Series 2 notes men who spoke a second language. Personnel who left Camp Kilmer, New York, en route to England in March 1944, are listed in series 3. The personnel files of series 4, 5 and 6 provide names of soldiers in the 134th on specific dates during the war. One list notes the hometown of each individual. The morning reports for the names between A and Leader are missing in series 7.

Subgroup 12 consists of Training Pamphlets used to train soldiers for specific duties and skills.

Subgroup 13 contains Miltonberger's Personal Materials. Of particular interest is his correspondence with President Harry S. Truman and General Dwight D. Eisenhower. These papers include an exchange in 1946 between Miltonberger and Stanley Frank, a free-lance reporter, regarding the 134th involvement at the Battle of St. Lo. Also included are the General's daily diary and log kept from July 6, 1941, to august 13, 1945. Miltonberger's scrapbook, shelved next to the collection, includes newspaper clippings, photographs, postcards, invitations, and his personal military identification booklet.

Subgroup 14 is comprised of Miscellany. Included are Miltonberger's award certificates, a typescript of an interview with General Miltonberger conducted by archivist, Don Snoddy, (see also A-V collection of this interview) and Mrs. Miltonberger's will.

Photographs have been transferred to the Photograph Department. Duplicate material has been given to the National Guard. Additional items can be found in the Archives Audio-Visual collection and in the Society's Museum Collections Department.

An agreement was signed in 1970 with General Miltonberger stating his intention to transfer his papers to the Society. The collection was given to the Society after his death, which occurred on March 23, 1977. The collection was officially received from the Caroline Miltonberger estate on July 19, 1977.
