Chuck Robb has spent most of his life “in the arena,” as Theodore Roosevelt called it, engaged in military and public service. As an officer in the Marine Corps, he became a White House social aide, where he met and soon married Lynda Bird Johnson, the daughter of his Commander-in-chief, Lyndon Johnson. Soon after their spectacular White House wedding, he shipped off to the war in Vietnam, where he would earn the Bronze Star.

Later, he would become Lieutenant Governor, then Governor of Virginia, and would go on to serve two terms in the U.S. Senate. He shares stories from his new memoir, appropriately titled “In the Arena,” chronicling his eventful life.

Copies of “In the Arena: A Memoir of Love, War, and Politics” are available from The Store at LBJ.
