In 2007 the Military Intelligence Corps mourned the loss of Lt. Gen. Sidney T. Weinstein, a true MI icon fondly remembered as the Father of Modern Military Intelligence. General Weinstein was not only a fine officer; he was a mentor, role model, a friend to many, and a dedicated family man. In honor of his service, the MI Corps created the Lt. Gen. Sidney T. Weinstein Award for Excellence in Military Intelligence. Each year the award recognizes one outstanding Military Intelligence captain who, through his or her actions, demonstrates the values and ideals for which Lt.
