The War College leadership, staff, faculty, students and distinguished visitors honored Wamala, a 2000 USAWC graduate and the 51st international fellow to be inducted. He is the 6thflag officer to be inducted from his USAWC class.
Wamala was commissioned in the Defence Forces after graduating from the Officers Cadet Training Course at the Tanzania Military Academy – Monduli in 1980. He is a graduate of the Nigerian Command and General Staff College. An infantry officer, Wamala has lead military campaigns, most notably Operation Safe Haven and Operation Iron Fist.
“Among the most important things I remember is the experience shared with the members of the class,” said Wamala. This is something you never find in the pages of strategy textbooks he said.
