Summary
"The autobiography of Lt. Gen. Julius "W. Becton Jr., U.S. Army (Ret.), presents his remarkable career and reveals the influences that contributed to his success. Becton reflects on his youth in the suburban Philadelphia area, his parental and family influences, and his almost forty years of service in the U.S. Army and in subsequent civilian appointments. His devotion to leadership, education, service, race, and his spiritual upbringing are all central themes in the book." "In 2007 he was selected to receive the George Catlett Marshall Medal, the highest award presented by the Association of the U.S. Army (AUSA), for being a "soldier, combat commander, administrator, educator, public servant, government leader, and role model.""--BOOK JACKET
