George A. Dreves Jr.

US Army - WWII Veteran

N. Hillsdale, New York - 08-12-18



The family of Mr. George A. Dreves Jr. has requested Patriot Guard Rider participation in his military honors funeral services. Mr. Dreves, 98, passed on May 1, 2018.

Born in Brooklyn, George grew up in Little Neck, NY. He enlisted in the United States Army in 1943 and served in North Africa with the 34th Infantry Division. He was wounded in the Battle of Hill 609, a key to the German defensive line facing the U.S. II Corps.

After returning home from the War, George worked in various fields, including new car manager for Chrysler, making mouth pieces for musical instruments at Arnold Brilharts, and finally working for the New York State School System as a bus driver and mechanic.

Portions of the above narrative are contained in Mr. Dreve's obituary, available for viewing online at the Direct Cremation of Maine website here:
