The James P. Reilly Jr. Annual International Security Lecture is named in honor of the father of Sean M. Reilly, '90, a man who emigrated to the United States in 1950 and two years later went to war to fight for his new country.  The individuals who deliver this prestigious lecture address the vital international security issues facing this nation.  They represent and embody the best of what it means to be an American.  James P. Reilly Jr. is a man of great faith, a committed husband and father, and a person who deeply understands the role education and intellectual discourse play in advancing and protecting this great nation.  James Reilly, and this lecture series, truly epitomize the motto God, Country, Notre Dame.
