Washington, DC – Visiting Indian Army Chief, General Bikram Singh, was recently inducted into the US Army War College (USAWC) International Fellows Hall of Fame. The outstanding honor in the international military community was conferred on General Singh for “having made a significant and enduring military/humanitarian contribution to international peace and stability” while holding the highest military rank in India.

General Singh, an alumnus of the USAWC located in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, having graduated with the class of 2004, delivered a keynote speech to the USAWC graduating class of 2013-2014.

During his visit December 2-5, General Singh visited important defense establishments of the US military and met a number of high-ranking defense and civilian officials in Washington, DC.

The visit assumed special significance in the light of enhanced defense cooperation between the two countries over the last few years and rapidly increasing engagements under the framework for India-US defense relations.

General Singh was recognized with a full honors ceremony by General Ray Odierno, United States Army Chief of Staff.

During their meeting, the two Generals reviewed the ongoing army-to-army cooperation and opportunities to further strengthen bilateral cooperation, including through joint training exercises and military exchanges. General Singh also utilized the opportunity to discuss the US-India defense relationship with other senior US military leadership and advance India’s military interests.
