Marshall in 30 Objects Intern Pick: Object #21 Five-Star Rank

Another object from Marshall in 30 Objects that strikes me as remarkable is Marshall’s five star rank. Marshall was one of only nine men (five Army and four Navy officers) to receive the rank of General of the Army, or Five Star. This makes Marshall the most distinguished man to graduate VMI and, despite his far-reaching impact on the world, one of the most humble.
