The Institute of World Politics is honored to welcome five new U.S. Army War College Fellows (USAWCF) for the 2014-2015 school year. This year’s fellows are: CH (LTC) William E. Godwin-Stremler, CH (COL) Samuel K. Godfrey, LTC Charmaine E. Betty-Singleton (USAR), LTC Gladys C. Turnbull (ARNG), and LTC (P) Edward P. Chamberlayne (pictured from left to right with John Lenczowski, founder and president of IWP).
LTC Charmaine E. Betty-Singleton, a native of Kingston, Jamaica, recently served as the Staff Judge Advocate of U.S. Army Garrison at the Fort Buchanan Installation legal office, directing and managing the operation of an eight person legal team. LTC (P) Edward P. Chamberlayne is from Alexandria, Virginia and has served as Chief of the Program Integration Branch at the Office of the Chief of Engineers on the HQ Department of the Army Staff. LTC Gladys C. Turnbull is a native of St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. She has spent the last 27 years in the intelligence and operations field, and has held a wide range of positions, including service as Director of Operations and Training (J3) at Joint Task Force Guantanamo and Battalion Commander of the 786th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion.
IWP is pleased to welcome two Army Chaplains to its USAWC Fellow program this year. CH (COL) Samuel K. Godfrey, originally from Hodges, SC, was commissioned as an Army Chaplain in 1990 after being ordained by The International Pentecostal Holiness Church, and served in the United States Army Reserve SC Army National Guard until accessioning to Active Duty in 1993. CH (LTC) William E. Godwin-Stremler, an ordained minister in the Reformed Church in America, has recently served as Chaplain Personnel Systems Coordinator at the Pentagon.
This academic year marks the sixth year in which IWP has hosted Army War College Fellows as they complete research projects for the Army. While conducting their research, the Army Fellows will also be attending class and experiencing the academic life of the Institute.
The Army Fellows program has grown dramatically in recent years, as the Institute is now home to five fellows, compared to one fellow in the 2012-2013 school year. The addition of four new Army Fellows puts The Institute of World Politics among the largest USAWCF programs in the country, alongside MIT and Harvard University. IWP is proud to be such an integral part of the support system of the country’s military leaders.
