Meet General Marshall
General George Catlett Marshall is considered by many to be one of the greatest modern-day American heroes. He is recognized as the organizer of the Allied Victory in World War II and the architect of the European Recovery Program (the Marshall Plan) that changed the face of the world and earned Marshall the Nobel Peace Prize. From the beginning of his 44-year public career as a graduate of Virginia Military Institute in 1901 to a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1953, Marshall's decorations, awards, and honorary degrees total more than 60, and include military, civilian, and substantial foreign recognition.
