INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana National Guard Lt. Col. Daniel E. Gilbert graduated with a Master of Science in national resource strategy at the Eisenhower School’s annual commencement ceremony, held June 7 in Washington, D.C.
“It was an honor of a lifetime to represent the Indiana National Guard at the National Defense University,” Gilbert said. “Within the Eisenhower School, my particular course of study examined the impact of the global financial services industry on national defense. This experience will help prepare me for future assignments at the strategic level by growing my understanding of national resource strategy.”
Gilbert, of Fort Wayne, will work at the National Guard Bureau in Virginia following graduation. He is the only Army National Guard officer to attend the Eisenhower School during the 2017-2018 academic year.
He graduated Marian University in 1999 and graduated from Carroll High School in Fort Wayne in 1995. He has family in the Churubusco area.
The Dwight D. Eisenhower School prepares select military officers and civilians for strategic leadership and success in developing national security strategy and in evaluating, marshaling and managing resources in the execution of that strategy.
