      RETIRED MARINE MAJOR GENERAL GEORGE H. CLOUD
      RECEIVES MILITARY HONORS AT FUNERAL
          Retired Marine Major General George H. Cloud, 91, who died December 30, 1995 in
      Elizabethtown, KY, received full military honors during his funeral service at the U.S. National Cemetery in Beaufort, SC.  Major General Cloud was laid to rest with respect and commemoration from the men and women of the United States Marines, whom Major General Cloud had led for over 35 years. While Parris Island Marines fired volleys as Major General Cloud was buried, the United States flag was flown at half mast from the beginning of the funeral until sunset of the same day at all buildings and grounds under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Marine Corps.
          George H. Cloud was born September 27, 1904 in Goldthwaite, TX. He attended the University of Texas and began his Marine Corps career as an enlisted man in May, 1927. His first military tour was in Shanghai, China, under the command of Major General Smedley D. Butler. After receiving a commission in 1930, then 2nd Lt. Cloud served in various commands before traveling to Hawaii to participate in early experimental joint fleet amphibious exercises which laid the groundwork for amphibious techniques used successfully by Marines in World War II.
          However, Cloud's work and sacrifice for World War II didn't end in just helping the Corps prepare for island hopping campaigns. He also survived the Japanese aerial assault on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, and was assigned to the command which aided in the advanced planning of a massive attack on the Japanese mainland, which thankfully wasn't necessary.
          Cloud later went on to serve as senior member of the Military Armistice Commission, United Nations Command in Korea. From there, he returned stateside and retired from active service on January 2, 1964.
          His awards included the Presidential Unit Citation with one bronze star in lieu of a second award, the Marine Expeditionary Award, the Yangtze Service Medal, the Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal with three bronze stars, and the World War II Victory Medal.
