SOSH Welcomes LTG(R) H.R. McMaster '84
The SOSH Department welcomed LTG(R) H.R. McMaster back to West Point to deliver the annual Class of 1952 Distinguished Lecture, moderated by Department Head COL Suzanne Nielsen. In his remarks, General McMaster shared with cadets many of the leadership lessons he first learned at West Point as a cadet and later as a faculty member, calling his time on the West Point faculty “the Army assignment that best prepared me to succeed as a senior leader, a general officer, and as the National Security Advisor.” He also spoke about the many foreign policy challenges that America faces in the international system today and the plans and processes that he established as National Security Advisor to best meet those challenges. Also in attendance were members of the West Point Class of 1952, whose generous endowment supports the SOSH Department’s thriving guest lecture program throughout the academic year.
