As a decorated veteran of World War II, Korea, and Vietnam, General Ed Rowney's military career continued to flourish following his time on the field. Rowney commanded troops in all three wars, and was appointed the US Representative to Strategic Arms Limitation Talks (SALT) and maintained this position under the presidencies of Nixon, Ford, and Carter. While studying in Poland he had the opportunity to attend the 1936 Berlin Olympics, which inspired him to enter the military -- he sensed that global war would soon emerge. After graduating from Johns Hopkins University in 1933, Rowney entered West Point Military Academy, beginning his elaborate military career. His first experience at war began with his leadership of the 92nd Infantry Division during the Second World War.
