General David H. Petraeus, as Commanding General, Multi-National Force-Iraq, led the surge in Iraq, where a change in tactics backed by an influx of about 30,000 additional U.S. service members seized the initiative from the insurgents. He assumed command of the United States Central Command in October 2008. He was commissioned in the Infantry upon graduation from the United States Military Academy in 1974. He has MPA and Ph.D. degrees in international relations from Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.

Colonel Leslie Callahan, for whom the memorial endowment is named, joined the GT Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISYE) faculty in 1969 after a twenty-five year military career. A 1944 graduate of the US Military Academy, he earned his master's degree (1951) and Ph.D. (1961) in electrical engineering from the University of Pennsylvania. He established the Callahan Endowment in 1993.
