TH 8894 John Graham Wallace "Wally" Mills was born in Hartley, Manitoba on August 1, 1919. He enlisted with the Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders for service overseas in the Second World War and achieved the rank of Lieutenant. Following the war, he served in the Reserve Army, and at the onset of the Korean War he joined the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry as a lieutenant, and qualified as a parachutist. He was a Captain in command of D Company during the Battle of KapYong and was awarded the Military Cross for his actions in battle. He returned to Canada in November 1951, and later served with peacekeeping forces in Palestine, Yemen, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Israel, Pakistan, and Korea. He retired from military service with the rank of Major in 1968, and later served as a business manager for the Edmonton Public School Board until his second retirement in 1984. He was married to Elaine Mills, and they had two daughters, Heather and Kimberley. He died in Edmonton on February 5, 1995.
