Milton Rein: “I wasn’t a gung-ho guy, I was just a normal G.I.”

“It was a family mystery. Everyone knew that Milton Rein had served in the United States Army during World War II. Everyone suspected that he had seen combat.

But Mr. Rein, a former auto shop owner who grew up in the New York area and who now lives in South Florida, was loath to share the details of that experience — not even with his brother, a business partner for more than 30 years, or his wife, whom he married in 1958.

… As it turned out, Mr. Rein, 85, had fought on the front lines of the Battle of the Bulge, one of the bloodiest, most pivotal battles of the war.”
