USMC Brigadier General Grouping


Recommended Posts

I recently acquired this grouping out of the woodwork belonging to Brigadier General Robert B C*arney USMC . There are some really great pieces here, and the General has quite an interesting family. His Father was a Navy Admiral, and his Father In-Law was General Richard Sutherland who served as Macarthurs Chief of Staff. There are some original photos of Sutherland with the group that i found in a photo album i presume was his daughters.

Nice group. The Chinese/Taiwanese Marines desk statue looks like it has some pretty good quality to it

His father was the namesake of the currently-serving USS Carney (DDG-64). Pretty cool!
