On November 28, 2018, the second annual The Honorable William H. Webster Distinguished Service Award Dinner takes place at The Ritz-Carlton in Washington, DC. This International Spy Museum event honors an individual who has served the nation in the field of National Security with integrity and distinction.

The Museum’s award is named for Judge William H. Webster, former director of the Central Intelligence Agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (the only individual to have held both offices), a man whose reputation for probity and forthrightness is the standard by which all others are measured. Before serving the intelligence community, Judge Webster was a distinguished jurist of the US District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri and of the US Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit.

Since retirement from public office, Webster has practiced law at the Washington DC office of Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy where he specializes in arbitration, mediation, and internal investigation. He is currently the Chairman of the Homeland Security Advisory Council and a founding member of the International Spy Museum Advisory Board of Directors. Judge Webster has a long record of distinguished service to our country; the International Spy Museum is pleased to name this award in his honor. 

It is with great pride that we announce the 2018 honoree: Admiral William H. McRaven, former US Special Operations Commander, former Joint Special Operations Commander, and former Chancellor of The University of Texas System. This year’s event will also include a Salute to Special Operations Forces and the inaugural recipient of the Innovation Award, L3 Warriors Sensor Systems.
