WPSD Quarterly Dinner – Sandhurst Presentation

Join us for a unique perspective on one ally's academy.  WPSD membership not required.


TOPIC: The Education & Career Development of a British Army Officer

Come and listen to two Sandhurst graduates talk about their experience at the British equivalent of West Point, and throughout their career in the Royal Army. Learn something about how America’s staunchest ally holds up their end of the “Special Relationship”.
LTC (Dr) Mathhew Roberts, with degrees from Cambridge, Oxford and Sandhurst, continues to serve in the Territorial Army (reserves) while working here in Denver. LTC Roberts, an anesthesiologist, has combat tours in both Iraq and Afghanistan.
CPT (Ret) Gary Smy, retired after 10 years service (you can do that in the UK army), served in Bosnia in support of the Royal Parachute Regiment.
