Keeper of the Flame Award

The Keeper of the Flame Award was inaugurated in 1990 by the Center for Security Policy to bestow recognition on those individuals who devote their public careers to the propagation of democracy and the respect for individual rights throughout the world. The Award both acknowledges the past contributions of its recipients and reminds others who share their commitment to freedom of the work yet to be done.

The Center’s Keeper of the Flame Award recognizes those individuals who have enhanced American security through their commitment to a strong military, the propagation of democracy and respect for individual rights throughout the world.

Each year the Center for Security Policy selects one individual who has done the most for our nation’s security to join the distinguished ranks of past awardees who include: General Peter Pace, Ronald Reagan, Donald Rumsfeld, James Schlesinger, Caspar Weinberger, General Richard Myers, Sen. Jim Inholf, Sen. John Kyl and Paul Wolfowitz.
