Marshall N Carter has a significant Legacy of Service in his family. His grandfather graduated from West Point in 1899. His father, a West Point Grad became a 3 Star Army General. After Marsh graduated from West Point in 1962, he decided to be a Marine Officer. In Vietnam he received the Navy Cross for heroism while evacuating wounded Marines in a day long battle. He held off enemy troops by tossing hand grenades. He methodically ordered air support to create enemy casualties allowing evacuation of the Marines. I took Marsh Carter to Vietnam in 2000 where he agreed to fund a very nice library for the people of Quang Tri.
After he left the Marine Corps he was unemployed - sending out dozens of resumes. Finally he found employment with Chase Bank where he learned the business of banking. In 1991 he became Chairman and CEO of State Street Bank in Boston which grew 6 fold under his leadership. He was asked to postpone retirement and became Chairman of the New York Stock Exchange.
He was always financially generous and helpful to me while CEO of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund. He remains active lecturing at MIT and elsewhere. He is an exceptional person - always cool, calm and thoughtful. He is also a Retired Marine Colonel in the Reserves.
