Leaving a Leadership Legacy - George C. Marshall

The "Leaders We Would Like to Meet" program showcases leaders within the wildland fire service. I'm starting a new blog feature, "Leaving a Leadership Legacy, that will appear every Friday. I will take readers on a journey into the leadership legacies of great leaders that may or may not be members of the wildland fire community.

This Friday, we begin a seven- or eight-part series on the leadership legacy of General George C. Marshall, US Army Chief of Staff during World War II, the third Secretary of Defense, and Nobel Peace Prize winner.

In the George C. Marshall Foundation's "Soldier and Statesman - Part 1," we get a glimpse of Marshall's ties to the wildland fire service through his work as a member of a 27-person Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) crew in Vancouver, WA.
