Dear Friend:

As such, Skip will receive ICAS Annual Liberty Award (ICAS Liberty Award Recipients) 2023 in recognition of his life-time contributions to advancing the US national security and a strong US-ROK Alliance and thus promoting Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

General Walter “Skip” Sharp was born in Morgantown, West Virginia while his father was fighting in the Korean War. General Sharp graduated from West Point in 1974 and was commissioned as an armor officer. He earned an M.S. in operations research and system analysis from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and is a graduate of the Army War College. General Sharp commanded the United Nations Command, Republic of Korea-United States Combined Forces Command and United States Forces Korea from 2008 to 2011.

General and Mrs. Sharp live in Alexandria, VA. He is a Director on The Korea Society BOD and former Chairman of BOD for the Military Officers Association of America. He is also on the BOD for ARTIS, LLC and consults for several U.S. companies focused on supporting our military and veterans.
