National Security Seminar (NSS)

The Department of National Security and Strategy develops and conducts instruction focused on national security and national military strategy.  It draws on the academic disciplines of international relations, politics, economics, regional studies, history, and national and international security studies to prepare students for senior positions in the national security establishment.

Army War College Foundation supports the National Security Seminar by underwriting the guest speakers and offsets costs for students, guests, and faculty who participate in this yearly event.  The annual National Security Seminar occurs during the first full week of June, immediately preceding graduation, and serves as the capstone event of the academic year.  This event provides a forum in which distinguished speakers may discuss their views on issues of importance to the nation's security and welfare with the students, International Fellows, and faculty of the Army War College and invited guests from across the country.  It provides an extended opportunity for a free and candid dialogue on these issues among the College students, faculty and invited guests.  And finally, it enables representative American citizens to get to know some of the prospective leaders of the American Armed forces and government and, in turn, permits the students to better understand the society they serve.

Daniel M. Lewin Memorial Lecture

Daniel M. Lewin, Danny, was murdered on September 11, 2001 aboard American Airlines flight 11 which crashed into the World Trade Center tower in New York City.  The 9/11 Commission Report mentions Danny by name after concluding there was reason to  believe he "...may have made an attempt to stop the hijackers..."  A resident of the Boston area, 31 years old, Danny excelled in each of his endeavors, as a distinguished soldier, student, scientist, businessman, and family man.  As a graduating student, he co-founded Akamai Technologies in 1998, and was responsible for Akamai's research and development strategy, creating innovative Internet infrastructure services that would produce an entirely new industry segment, and forever change the way people and companies distribute content, data and applications.  Several of his friends and business associates have provided support to AWCF to honor and remember Danny with the annual Daniel M. Lewin Memorial Lecture presented to the graduating Distance Education (DDE) Class.

Support for this event now comes to the Foundation from one of its Trustees' organizations, The Beck Foundation, Inc., and honors the late General Glenn Otis, former Commander-in-Chief, U.S. Army Europe, and USAWC Class of 1970.
