Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has received an Air Force Academy award for contributions to U.S. defense and security.
Rice was given the Thomas D. White National Defense Award during a visit to the academy last week.
The award is named for a former Air Force chief of staff. The academy presents the award annually.
Rice was national security adviser and secretary of state under President George W. Bush. She now teaches at Stanford University.
