General George C. Marshall Lectures – Presented by Riverview Community Bank
The Marshall Lecture is the cornerstone event of Celebrate Freedom. The Marshall Lecture honors the character and principles of General George C. Marshall, who served at Vancouver Barracks as Commander of the 5th Infantry Brigade from 1936 to 1938. Lectures focus on three phases of Marshall’s career: his time in Vancouver, his achievements as a military leader, and the impact of his work as Secretary of State. In 1953, Marshall received the Nobel Peace Prize, the only professional soldier ever so honored. The award recognized the Marshall Plan, which provided an alternative to totalitarianism, and gave Europe’s countries the economic strength by which they might choose freedom.
