Veljko Miljus Lost at Lake Michigan
Tragic End of a Great Humanitarian
CHICAGO – On July 21, cold waters of Lake Michigan near Chicago took Mr. Veljko Miljus, a man who felt all the suffering of the Serbian people, who understood the tragedy of the children left without father in the Serbian lands during the tragic wars of the 90s.
He was born in 1950, in Kordun, and after his father’s death moved to the USA with his mother. He earned the M.S. degree in Chemical Engineering at Purdue University, and, as an outstanding engineer, he was employed by the chemical giant “Union Carbide.”
With his wife, Angelina, he started a travel agency in 1979; by 1991 they had seven travel agencies in Chicago and vicinity.
