At least two Wilkes men, J. C. Miller, Jr., and Max
Kilby, both of North Wilkesboro, were among the gal
lant U. S. Marines who clesuied the Japs from the Sol
omon islands in the South Pacific.
First direct word from any Wilkes men in the brave
groups who literally annihilated the Japs on the islands
was contained in a letter received' this week by Mr. and
Mrs. J. C. Miller, from their son, J. C., Jr., lirhh si^d
that he was “alive annd, kicking”, but regretted to state
that many of His brave comrades werfe not. However,
he said casualties among the Marines were few in view
of the fact that they were the invading force.
Miller, whose part in the invasion of Tulagi island
must have been a most active one, sitated that he and
Max rKilby, son of Mrs. and Mrs. C. C. Kilby, of North
Wilkesboro, went through the battles toj^ther without
injury. — ' ^
In the letter he enclosed a picture of some Jap Ma
rines which he said he “looted” and sent to his parents
as a souvenir.
