Millard B. Fleischer, a retired business executive and World War II veteran, died of leukemia Monday at his home in Chevy Chase. He was 86.

Born in Baltimore, he graduated from City College and attended the Johns Hopkins University, where he played lacrosse.

He enlisted in the Army Air Forces at the outset of the war and served in the Pacific. An aerial gunner, he also chronicled the war as a combat correspondent for Yank magazine.

After the war, he joined the Jos. M. Zamoiski Co., an appliance distributor in the Baltimore-Washington area. He remained with the company for 30 years, retiring as a divisional vice president.

A memorial service will be held at 9:30 a.m. today at the Washington Hebrew Congregation, where he was a longtime member.

Survivors include his wife of 57 years, Sophia Eisenman Fleischer; sons Charles Fleischer of Los Angeles and Butch Fleischer of Silver Spring; and four grandchildren.
