GPSLD's awards reception is named in honor of one of the founders of our division, the late General E.E. Anderson, U.S. Marine Corps, Retired. General Anderson was the youngest active duty Marine ever promoted to the rank of General. General Anderson served as GPSLD chair, GPSLD delegate and was a division leader until his death in 2015. In 2014, he was awarded the ABA’s highest honor, the ABA Medal. In accepting the award, he said that he believes “with all my heart that the American Bar Association keeps the ligament of justice strong. The ABA is an organization that works tirelessly for freedom and justice and whose moral compass is pointed always to true north.” This year, we are not holding the awards reception due to the pandemic.
