Lieutenant General H. R. McMaster (USA Ret.) was assistant to the president for National Security Affairs from 2017-2018. He is renowned and distinguished as a pre-eminent “warrior-thinker” and “iconoclast general.” McMaster currently operates from the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. His PhD in History from UNC Chapel Hill grounds his perspectives and his 34 years of military service as well as his 13 months as National Security Advisor gives him a front row seat to global affairs in our era. McMaster will provide a powerful call for Americans and citizens of the free world to transcend the vitriol of partisan political discourse, better educate themselves about the most significant challenges to national and international security, and work together to secure peace and prosperity for future generations.
