One of 17, this pistol was twice presented to General Frank T. Mildren, U. S. Army. This gun was originally presented to General Mildren by the Army, then re-presented after it had been engraved. Army general officers have been issued special pistols since the Second World War. The reasons for this are obscure. Typically, Army general officer pistols have been John Browning-designed Colt Pocket Automatic Pistols in .32 or .380 caliber. The General Officers' Pistol can be found in Gallery 11, Ever Vigilant, at the NRA National Firearms Museum in Fairfax, Virginia.
