Eugene G. Schulz was born on a
farm in Clintonville,
Wisconsin in 1923. He graduated from high school in
May, 1941, and worked on his father’s farm and at a truck
manufacturing plant until he was drafted into the army in
January 1943.
Schulz received his basic training at Camp Young, California
at the Desert Training Center, and later at Camp Campbell,
Kentucky. He was assigned to the IV Armored Corps (later
named the XX Corps) where he was a typist in the G-3 Section.
His duties included the typing of battle orders developed by
Colonel W. B. Griffith, the G-3 of XX Corps Headquarters.
The XX Corps sailed to England in February 1944 on the
Queen Mary with 16,000 soldiers on board, completing the voyage in five days. After final
training in England, the XX Corps landed on Utah Beach in Normandy on D+46. His
unit was attached to General Patton’s Third Army and spearheaded the drive across France,
through Germany and into Austria where they met the Russian Army on V-E Day.
Schulz was awarded the Bronze Star medal when the war ended. He served in
the Army of Occupation in Germany, then returned to the States and was discharged
on December 1, 1945. He enrolled at the University of Wisconsin—Madison taking
advantage of the GI Bill of Rights, and earning Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Business
Administration. Schulz met his wife, Eleanore, at the University and they were married
in 1949. Schulz worked as an investment research officer at the Northwestern Mutual
Life Insurance Company in Milwaukee for 36 years. The Schulz’s have been retired since
1988 and continue to live in Milwaukee. They are world
travelers. They have five sons, all married, and sixteen
grandchildren.
