CTR3 John Alexander Miller, III, USN
June 4, 1944 – April 14, 1969

CTR3 John Alexander Miller III was assigned to 5th Division at NSGA Kamiseya (The Fleet Support Division that supplied personnel to VQ-1 and ships such as the Pueblo).   Retired Commander Cody Hanna (then a CTI2 Russian linguist also assigned to 5th Division) was a close friend and remembered him as follows:

“CTR3 John Miller was the one I knew best.  John had his wife and daughter “Andy” at Kamiseya with him.  John had done more than his share and was an extremely dedicated sailor.  More than that he was one of the finest men I have ever had the privilege to serve with.  His enlistment was due to expire within a few months and I recall suggesting to him on several occasions that he had done more than his share and should turn over the flight duties to a new hand and enjoy his remaining days in Japan but he was far too dedicated to consider that.”
