“The Lousy Bums of Hierson” displays Miller’s typical wit: “Tibbets on the right has been thru a lot. He is a typical little dried up Yankee.

(From the Zenos Miller Diary)

Three members of the 27th aero squadron: “Pink” (real name unknown), Zenos Miller, and Clifford A. McElvain. Pink writes in the diary: “They say two redheads will always quarrel, but if it is the same shade they will blend, and ‘Red’ and I blend. Cheerio Red old boy.”
