Description & Design:
General George C. Marshall graduated from the Virginia Military Institute in 1901. He served a distinguished career in the United States Army. In 1939, he was appointed United States Army Chief of the General Staff. In 1947, he was appointed Secretary of State for the United States. General Marshall was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his development and implementation of the European Recovery Program (the “Marshall Plan”) and subsequently served for one year as the Secretary of Defense. General Marshall was both a graduate of and instructor at the Infantry and Cavalry School, as well as a graduate of the United States Army Command and General Staff College.
In 1915, General Dwight D. Eisenhower began a career of distinguished public service, reaching the highest positions of military and civil leadership in the United States. He excelled early in his career while serving under Generals Pershing, MacArthur and Krueger. After Pearl Harbor, he was invited to Washington, DC, for a special assignment by General Marshall. After many successes leading troops including serving as Supreme Commander of the troops invading France on D-Day, he became President of Columbia University. In 1951, he took leave from his position at the University to assume supreme command over the new NATO forces being assembled. It was during his tenure at this position that he was persuaded to enter as a candidate for the presidency in 1952. With a sweeping victory, he was elected the 34th President of the United States. He was an honor graduate from the United States Army Command and General Staff College.
