Winant Scholars Program AIAD
Cadets in the Winant Scholars Program Academic Individual Advanced Development (AIAD) traveled to Munich and Berchtesgaden, Germany; London; and Normandy and Paris, France. Throughout the trip, the cadets read scholarly works, led discussions, and visited sites relevant to the timeline of World War II, grand strategy, and the development of the US/UK special relationship. Such sites included the Königsplatz, Dachau Concentration Camp, Hitler’s Berghof home, the UK Parliament, the Imperial War Museum in London, the White Cliffs of Dover, the D-Day beaches of Normandy, the Normandy American Cemetery, and Luxembourg Palace. The program is named for John Gilbert Winant, US Ambassador to the UK during WWII, and it focuses on his contributions to the special relationship.
