Maxie B. Pullen served the US Army from December 1953 – December 1955. He was stationed several places but spent most of his time in Texas. He was my grandfather and a hell of a man. He married my grandmother, Shirley Pullen, and built his life in Kilmichael, Mississippi. They had three daughters: Mackie, Christie, and Mitzie. Maxie Pullen passed in 2013 leaving behind 3 daughters, 10 grandchildren (8 girls and 2 boys), and 6 great grandson’s.
He was everything to me. He taught me how to fish, and what a man is. He has made me laugh, cry, and believe in myself more than anyone else. He loved to hear me sing, and he never missed anything I participated in as a child and as an adult. He was my best friend, and I miss him dearly.
