Martin Sam Milner (December 28, 1931 – September 6, 2015) was an American film, stage, radio, and television actor. Milner is known for his performances on two television series: Route 66 , which aired on CBS from 1960 to 1964, and Adam-12 , which aired on NBC from 1968 to 1975.
Route 66 is an American television drama that premiered on CBS on October 7, 1960, and ran until March 20, 1964, for a total of 116 episodes. The series was created by Herbert B. Leonard and Stirling Silliphant, who were also responsible for the ABC drama Naked City, from which Route 66 was indirectly spun off. Both series employed a format with elements of both traditional drama and anthology drama, but the difference was where the shows were set: Naked City was set in New York City, while Route 66 had its setting change from week to week, with each episode being shot on location.

The United States Army (USA) is the land warfare service branch of the United States Armed Forces. It is one of the seven uniformed services of the United States, and is designated as the Army of the United States in the United States Constitution. As the oldest and most senior branch of the U.S. military in order of precedence, the modern U.S. Army has its roots in the Continental Army, which was formed to fight the American Revolutionary War (1775–1783)—before the United States of America was established as a country. After the Revolutionary War, the Congress of the Confederation created the United States Army on 3 June 1784 to replace the disbanded Continental Army. The United States Army considers itself descended from the Continental Army, and dates its institutional inception from the origin of that armed force in 1775.
Special Services was the entertainment branch of the American military. The unit was created on 22 July 1940 by the War Department as part of the Army Service Forces. Special Services not only used their own specially trained and talented troops but also would often engage local performers.

In 1960, Milner won the role of Tod Stiles on the CBS television series, Route 66 , which ran from 1960 to 1964. Created by Stirling Silliphant, Route 66 is about two regular but distinctly different young men in a car touring the United States.
After the sudden death of his father left him penniless, Milner's character, Tod, travels across the United States in a Chevrolet Corvette, taking a variety of odd jobs along the way and getting involved in other people's problems. Tod's traveling partner on his escapades is his friend Buz Murdock (played by George Maharis), a former employee of his father's. During the series' third season, Milner got a new co-star, Glenn Corbett, who was brought in to replace Maharis - Tod's new traveling partner was Lincoln "Linc" Case, an Army veteran who had a dark past, and Corbett remained in the role for the remaining season and a half.
Route 66 was a different sort of television program, as the travels of Tod and his traveling partners were shot on location. Thus, Milner spent nearly four years traveling the country for the series, sometimes taking his wife and children along.
Milner appeared on Broadway once in a short-lived comedy, The Ninety Day Mistress, in 1967, opposite Dyan Cannon.
Milner and Webb had a long-established working relationship by the time it came to cast Adam-12. Milner appeared in numerous episodes of both the radio and television versions of the seminal Jack Webb series Dragnet.

Kent McCord played his partner, rookie Officer James A. "Jim" Reed. The NBC series ran from 1968 to 1975. Like Webb's Dragnet, it was based on real Los Angeles Police Department procedures and cases.
Milner was Webb's choice for "cop behind the wheel" Pete Malloy in part because his relative youth and prior acting credits and because of his on-camera driving experience from his days on Route 66. 's run on NBC, the best known and first of which was the pilot episode The Wedsworth-Townsend Act .He guest starred in three episodes of Emergency! between 1972 and 1976, during and after Adam-12

After retiring from acting, Milner co-hosted a radio show about fishing called "Let's Talk Hook-Up" on San Diego-area sports station XETRA AM 690 (now XEWW).In 1998, Milner decided to pay an homage of sorts to the series which made him a star, Route 66, with the documentary film Route 66: Return to the Road With Martin Milner, which featured Milner in a 1961 Corvette on a journey from Chicago to Santa Monica on the highway.
In May 1956, Milner met singer and actress Judith Bess Jonesat a Hollywood dinner party. They were married on February 23, 1957, in Waukegan, Illinois. They had four children.
In February 2003, Milner's eldest daughter Amy, who appeared in an episode of Adam 12, was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia.She died in December 2004.
