Leadership
Above, Major Ruth Cheney Streeter, later Colonel Streeter and soon to become the first director of the U.S. Marine Corps Women's Reserve alongside then Major Edward Hunter Hurst. Hurst retired after a distinguished career with the Marine Corps as Brigadier General Hurst. He was commended for Conspicuous Gallantry during the seizure and occupation of the island of Peleliu, as did my own father, in the South Pacific and later received the Silver Star and Navy Cross for Extraordinary Heroism.(49)
