Lt. General Lawrence F. Snowden "has experienced much over the course of his
lifetime. A true Southern gentleman, General Snowden presents a humble account
of his life's accomplishments -- and they are many. At the age of 95, his mind
is as sharp as a tack, his wit dry, and his demeanor humble and thankful for all
he has achieved in an extraordinary life. In 2015, General Snowden was inducted
into Florida's Veterans Hall of Fame in recognition of his service to his
country and his advocacy for elder Floridians. In 2016, he was presented two
awards for lifetime public service, one from the Secretary of Defense and one
from the Secretary of the Navy. This volume, which can serve as a companion to
the oral history of General Snowdens military career (History Division, U.S.
Marine Corps, 2011), is a gift to his children, grandchildren, and future
generations. It is also a tribute to his beloved Marine Corps and to all the
citizens of the United States." Lieutenant General Lawrence F. Snowden is
the author of Snowden's Story: One Marine's Indebtedness to the Corps.
