Happy #NationalPersonalChefDay to Richard C. Wing, General George C. Marshall’s cook and orderly from 1945-1947. Wing, a sergeant in the U.S. Army, first worked for Marshall at the general’s residence at Fort Myer, Virginia. He later accompanied Marshall on the 1946 mission to China and the 1947 Foreign Ministers Conference in Moscow. http://ow.ly/i/GXytO

General George C. Marshall received this robe from Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek while serving as President Harry Truman’s Special Envoy to China from December 1945 to January 1947. Marshall “re-gifted” the robe to his wartime staff secretary Frank McCarthy, a 1933 graduate of the Virginia Military Institute and producer of the Oscar-winning movie Patton. McCarthy later donated it to the Marshall Museum. #insidethecollections http://ow.ly/i/GTTKw

"If ever a man deserved the appointment, that man was General Marshall. Yet in the hierarchy of command the appointment of Supreme Commander would have entailed a step down from his post as Army Chief of Staff. But step down or no, had General Marshall left Washington to go to Europe, no one--not even Eisenhower--could have taken his place. Omar Bradley "A Soldier's Story" #thursdaythought #overlord #georgecmarshall

When you visit, don't miss the mahogany table used by General Marshall in his Pentagon office. The table was originally purchased for the personal use of the Secretary of War, probably in the 1880s. It was used by every Secretary of War until 1916 when Secretary Newton D. Baker ordered a new desk. Gen. Marshall discovered this one in storage and used it throughout World War II.
