LIEUTENANT COLONEL WILLIAM B. WALPERT

Lt Col Bill Walpert is a National Defense Fellow in the Institute for the Study of Diplomacy at Georgetown University. Prior to this assignment he commanded the 94th Intelligence Squadron on Fort George G. Meade, Maryland. In that capacity he led more than 370 Airmen performing world-wide distributed common ground station and expeditionary SIGINT missions. He was previously assigned to the Air Force Executive Action Group serving the Secretary and Chief of Staff of the Air Force, Headquarters Air Force. He served as the Communications Team Chief, leading seven officers and civilians responsible for producing the speeches, Congressional testimony, and written communication for the Secretary, Chief of Staff, Under Secretary, and Vice Chief of Staff of the Air Force.


Lt Col Walpert is a graduate of the School of Advanced Air and Space Studies (SAASS), Maxwell AFB, Alabama. His studies at SAASS were the continuation of a sustained pursuit of academic achievement. As a political science major at the US Air Force Academy he earned the Robert J. Smith award for excellence in political science upon graduation in 1994. Four years later he attended the National Defense Intelligence College and graduated in the top 15% of his class. In 2003 he completed a Masters in Business Administration from the University of Texas at Dallas with honors. As a distinguished graduate of Air Command and Staff College he was selected for SAASS, where he authored an award winning thesis and was selected to be an Air University PhD candidate.
Throughout his career, Lt Col Walpert instituted a number of innovations in the intelligence career field. After writing a masters thesis on intelligence support to AFSOC’s special tactics operators he was selected to be the first intelligence officer assigned to a special tactics squadron. As a qualified static-line parachutist, Lt Col Walpert supported four combat control and pararescue teams on several deployments and authored the first intelligence doctrine for this unique special operations capability. Similarly, Lt Col Walpert designed, tested, and implemented a new intelligence officer crew position on the RC-135 RIVET JOINT signals intelligence aircraft. His innovative solution during the initial days of Operation IRAQI FREEDOM enabled the real-time integration and coordination of ISR collection from a crew of 30 officer and enlisted technicians with ground combatants.
As Director of Operations of the 390th Intelligence Squadron, Lt Col Walpert led more than a hundred linguists and technical collection operators in the collection and analysis of ISR supporting PACOM and SOCOM operations. Eighth Air Force recognized him as the outstanding intelligence officer of the year during this time.

Lt Col Walpert has over 300 combat flying hours. He is married to the former Marisa England of Texas. They have two children, Allison (7) and Bethany (4).
