2018 Thayer Award

The 23rd U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta receives the 2018 Sylvanus Thayer Award presented by the West Point Association of Graduates at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, Oct. 4, 2018. The Thayer Award is given to a citizen of the United States, other than a West Point graduate, whose outstanding character, accomplishments, and stature in the civilian community draw wholesome comparison to the qualities for which West Point strives, in keeping with its motto: “Duty, Honor, Country.” (U.S. Army photo by Bryan Ilyankoff)
