Talk by World War II Veteran


Mr. Milton Pike was invited by Ms. Deidre Barry to give a talk to our 8th graders who are studying World War II.

As a young man Mr. Pike worked in NYC in lithography studios these skills were tapped by the army. During WWII, Milton Pike was assigned the task of creating maps, currency, collecting War Crimes Evidence, and most notably printing the Articles of Surrender to be signed aboard the U.S.S. Missouri. He was gracious with his time and dusted off his photo album and showed us numerous WWII era pictures, currency used in Pacific theater, an original printing of the Articles of Surrender, and shared stories worthy of the History Channel. The 98 year old Mr. Pike made history come alive for our 8th graders.
