National Hall of Fame

The National Hall of Fame honors American alumni whose exceptional record of service and achievement merits special recognition. Induction into the National Hall of Fame is open to U.S. citizens who are graduates of one of the following components of the National Defense University: National War College, Dwight D. Eisenhower School for National Security and Resource Strategy (formerly the Industrial College of the Armed Forces), Joint Forces Staff College, Information Resources Management College (iCollege), or the College of International Security Affairs.

To be eligible alumni must have served at the three- or four-star level in one of the armed services; at the Ambassadorial level in the Foreign Service; or at the equivalent levels in the Civil Service or the private sector/non-government organizations.
