On the last day of this year we celebrate George C. Marshall’s birthday 135 years ago.
Determined to play the hand he was dealt, he probably did not feel sorry for himself because of the somewhat unfortunate timing of this birth. In fact it is his steely resolve to push on that is one of the many aspects of his character that make him exemplary even today as a role model for others to emulate.
His unimpeachable character represents an important element of our quest: To share the best of Marshall with those who follow in order to insure the valuable and still-timely lessons of General Marshall’s life are not lost and that this nation and the wider world continue to be inspired by the standards he set. We have begun the journey to accomplish this end through our Marshall Legacy Series that will continue to amaze those who have a thirst for understanding how Marshall’s incredible vision helped to shape our world today.
