The Goodpaster Prize & Lecture was inaugurated twelve years ago in memory of one of the U.S. military’s great “soldier-scholars.” It honors and helps to perpetuate the work of fellow soldier-scholars in the mold of General Andrew J. Goodpaster. This year the award was presented to LTG H.R. McMaster, retired U.S. Army Lieutenant General and 26th National Security Advisor. He was decorated with the Silver Star for his actions in the Gulf War, has earned a Ph.D. in American History from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and authored the classic work on the Vietnam War, ‘Dereliction of Duty.’
