This personal pay record of Pvt Eugene A. McMillan reflects his initial enlistment date of 13 October 1942 which occurred at Camp Grant, IL, about 100 miles south of his home in Beaverdam, Wisconsin.

As a Private on parachutist pay, Eugene had a monthly pay rate of $100, less any taxes that were taken out.  Of the remainder, about 50% was given up by a monthly deduction of $6.50 for a $15,000 life insurance policy premium and another $37.00 a month was sent home as an allotment.

Although there is an entry showing that Eugene was reduced in grade from Pfc to Private on 3 March 1944, it did not weigh heavily on his career as he subsequently re-enlisted as a TSgt on 16 November 1945 and ultimately retied as a commissioned officer.

Note that this book was signed by 2nd Lt. Arthur F. Snee who was KIA on 6 June 1944.
