What is necessary to sustain the American republic you are sworn to defend?
What are the moral and constitutional laws and principles that govern just warfare? What does the American tradition of leadership tell us distinguishes the great leader from the merely competent one?
In today’s world, these questions are no longer optional for military officers seeking to excel. Our troops find themselves in complicated international political and social situations, in a military (and a country) that is beginning to ask deep questions about what it should look like in the future. The officers who succeed not only in having successful careers but in making a positive difference in the world will be the ones whose knowledge, wisdom, and judgment go deeper than technical training can provide.
Named for the famous turning-point battle of the American Revolution, the Saratoga Fellows Program is an intensive intellectual, moral, and spiritual training program for any junior officer in the Armed Forces, designed to prepare them to be exceptional leaders in today’s military and civilian ranks.
