In 1944, General Marshall's uniform displays both the World War II Victory Medal and a combat star to the Combat Infantryman Badge (denoting two awards of the decoration). Neither of these decorations were introduced until after the end of the Second World War. General Marshall himself was also never a recipient of the Combat Infantryman Badge, which was only awarded for front line combat duty. See more »
Gary Sinese goes a great job portraying the farmer who became a president- a man who could make tough decisions and live with them. Though surrounded by corruption, he never stooped to it. His letters to his wife are touching- since Bess did not cotton to Washington society. The whole movie- from his early days in haberdashery to the Korea and MacArthur are documented very well. I also liked the touch of his defending he daughter Margaret against the music critic of the Washington Post- He was a strong man- stubborn as a Missouri mule but also a man of intergrity.
