This week, Gene speaks to retired U.S. Army Lieutenant General Julius W. Becton, Jr. One of the first black Americans to reach the rank of general officer, Becton began his career as a platoon leader in Korea, where he was decorated for valor in combat. He went on to serve in Vietnam, and held a number of commands before retiring in 1983. He has since enjoyed a long career in civil service, and has recently published his autobiography, titled Becton: A Soldier and Public Servant.
