He accepted the hand of his savior to which He had given his life and trusted in His restoring and sustaining power to see him home. Milton was born on June 28, 1944 to Milton Harwell Carson Sr. and Marita Ella (Jordan) Carson in Newark, New Jersey. He grew up in the church and valued his Christian education. Upon accepting responsibility for his faith, he had his confirmation in 1956. Milton attended school in Asbury Park, a small seaside city on the New Jersey coast. Known in the village as Kit and Topper, Milton graduated high school in 1962. Thereafter, he swore an oath of enlistment with the United States Air Force. He was faithful to his country stateside and in numerous deployments. Milton completed twenty-two years and four months of service and was honorably discharged on August 31, 1985 at Patrick AFB located on the East Coast of central Florida as Cable Antenna Systems/Installation Supervisor.
