Dr. Marvin Carter

The General as he's fondly referred to within the group has been an advisor and staunch supporter.  He is there to offer support and advice through a multitude of issues surrounding the navigation of the military complex.

He served in the United States Marine Corps for 37 years, starting as a lieutenant in the infantry and progressed up the ranks.  He was stationed in many capacities in the U.S. and around the globe.

We thank him sincerely for his continued faithful championing of our mission.
