On Tuesday, October 4th 2011, the Center for Security Policy
presented U.S. Representative
 HOWARD P. “BUCK” McKEON
the Keeper of the Flame Award.
 
Rep. McKeon embodies the Center for Security Policy’s ideals. He champions a strong national defense, he fights to strengthen our military and he invests in a force postured to meet the challenges of the 21st century. Representative McKeon was selected by his peers to serve as Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee in the 112th Congress
 Previously, as Armed Services Committee Ranking Member, Representative McKeon worked to provide the necessary resources for America’s sons and daughters in Afghanistan and Iraq. He also led efforts to keep terrorist detainees off of U.S. soil, boost funding for missile defense, and restore the tradition of passing defense authorization bills devoid of controversial social items.

 

Three-term Senator from Arizona Jon Kyl joined the Center for Security Policy in honoring Congressman Buck McKeon with the 2011 Keeper of the Flame award.
Sen. Kyl himself is a 1994 recipient of the award and a longtime supporter of the Center's work. Rep. Allen West (R-FL) also saluted Congressman McKeon in in a moving benediction to close the evening
, speaking about the "flame" that is America's national spirit.

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.

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.

The event brings together an extraordinary array of senior Executive Branch officials (military and civilian), leading members of Congress, diplomats, captains of industry and top journalists for a relatively intimate and extremely memorable black-tie dinner and celebration.

The Center for Security Policy is a non-profit, non-partisan national security organization that specializes in identifying policies, actions, and resource needs that are vital to American security and then ensures that such issues are the subject of both focused, principled examination and effective action by recognized policy experts, appropriate officials, opinion leaders, and the general public.

The Center was founded in 1988 and has worked to great effect since then in the establishment of successful national security policies through the use of all elements of national power – diplomatic, informational, military, and economic strength.

The philosophy of "Peace through Strength" is not a slogan for military might but a belief that America's national power must be preserved and properly used for it holds a unique global role in maintaining peace and stability.

 

Mission of the
Center for Security Policy:
To identify challenges and opportunities likely to affect American security, broadly defined, and to act promptly and creatively to ensure that they are the subject of focused national examination and effective action.
Today's national security threats compel us to ensure we are strong and prepared. We as a nation must also work to undermine the ideological foundations of totalitarianism and Islamist extremism with at least as much skill, discipline and tenacity as President Reagan employed against Communism to prevail in the Cold War.

 

The role of the Center for Security Policy is to help our government, countrymen and other freedom-loving nations conceptualize, conduct and succeed on this front. The Center's dedicated staff, associates and advisors constitute the Special Forces in this war of ideas – equipped with the experience, imagination, expertise, agility and drive not just to advance strategies for victory, but to get them adopted and implemented.
