He attempted to enlist in the U.S. military during World War II but was rejected because of poor eyesight, The New York Times reported. Miller was later drafted into the Army Air Forces, where he taught fledgling pilots on a flight simulator and then enrolled in a statistical program for officers at Harvard.

Anadolu Group, Kıraca Holding, BMC, Turkcell and Zorlu Holding, some of which are already involved in car production for other brands as suppliers, will form the industrial backing for the project, Hurriyet Daily News reports.
He credits its handling with saving his life one dark night when a bumper fell off a semi, forcing him to swerve into an interstate median, blowing out two tires in the process.
