Colonel Dennis J. Humphrey, PhD of Beebe graduated from the United States Army War College in a ceremony at Carlisle Barracks, Pennsylvania on July 25, 2014, with a Masters degree in Strategic Studies.

According to the U.S. Army War College website, Carlisle Barracks is one of the oldest military installations in the country. The U.S. Army War College housed at Carlisle Barracks educates and develops leaders for service at the strategic level while advancing knowledge in the global application of world power. The purpose of U.S. Army War College is to produce graduates who are skilled critical thinkers and complex problem solvers. The college also serves as a “Think Factory” for commanders and civilian leaders at the strategic level worldwide.

Army Officers predominate the student body, but there are representatives from all services and selected government agencies. The military students are colonels, lieutenant colonels, or Navy captains and commanders with 17-23 years of service. The 368 students of the U.S. Army War College Distance Education Class of 2014 represent a broad spectrum of backgrounds and experience in service to the nation.

In addition to a Masters degree in Strategic Studies, COL Humphrey also earned a Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) Writing Award for his program research project entitled, “The Information Element of Power/Human Domain Nexus.” This recognition signifies excellence in research and writing and placed Humphrey in the forefront of the class of 2014. Dennis Humphrey is chair of the English and Fine Arts Division at Arkansas State University-Beebe and currently serves on the Joint Staff in the Arkansas Army National Guard at Camp Robinson.
