He currently serves as the director of Concept Development and Learning at the Army Capabilities Integration Center, Training and Doctrine Command in Fort Monroe, Virginia. He also holds a Ph.D. in military history from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

McMaster commanded a squadron during operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm in Iraq.

The Stockdale Symposium encourages members of the local community to join with university, military and corporate representatives to join together for discussions of moral issues in leadership in our society.
