Parents were Slovakians who immigrated from Békéscsaba, Hungary.
Michael’s birthplace was probable Tide Dale, a hamlet next to Lucerne
Mines, near Homer City, PA.There is no known birth record. He worked
in coal fields with his father following high school. Enlisted in
United States Army in 1935. Secured appointment to the United States
Military Academy at West Point, New York through the preparatory
school in 1936 and graduated from West Point in 1940. Was veteran of
World War II. Entered war as First Lieutenant and advanced during the
war to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel, retaining that rank for about
ten years. At this point he was promoted to Colonel and served his
last five years of active duty as Brigadier General. Supposedly, he
was the second most decorated soldier of WW II next to Audie Murphy,
who was a member of his battalion. They were close personal friends
following the war. General Paulick was the technical advisor for the
movie "To Hell and Back", starring Murphy, which showed how Murphy had
won the Congressional Medal of Honor.
