Milan Emil Uzelac
Milan Emil Uzelac (August 26, 1867 - January 7, 1954) was a Croatian soldier and military commander who was a leading figure in the air forces of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Kingdom of Yugoslavia and the Independent State of Croatia.
In 1912 he was made commander of the Austro-Hungarian Imperial and Royal Aviation Troops, which until then had been mostly a force of balloons. He modernized the force and was subsequently decorated with numerous imperial awards.
In 1941 he was saved by deportation by the Independent State of Croatia, through his friend Edmund Glaise von Horstenau, the Deutscher kommandierender General in Agram. He was made an honorary general of the Air Force of the Independent State of Croatia, within the Croatian Home Guard.
