Served Under General Major Patton: Sergeant Paul Nevell Carter

Paul Nevell Carter was a dedicated man who took care of his family by working two jobs. His main job was with the Federal government as a nursing assistant in radiology at National Institute of Health (NIH). His second job was with Giant Food Store where he worked at different locations; but, many Alexandrians would remember him working at the Giant Food Store in Alexandria. He was dedicated to his family. Because Paul worked two jobs, this allowed his wife to be in the home for their children.

Paul repeated many times to his family about his war time service that left lasting memories with his children. Paul served in World War II under General Major Patton.
