WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) — Former President George W. Bush will be honored with an award at West Point.

The U.S. Military Academy's Association of Graduates will present the Thayer Award to the 43rd president on Oct. 19.

The Thayer Award is given to citizens whose service in the national interest reflects the academy's motto of "Duty, Honor, Country." Past recipients include Dwight D. Eisenhower, Bob Hope, Tom Brokaw and Bush's father, former President George H.W. Bush, who received the award in 1994.

This will be the first time a father and son have received the Thayer Award.

Last year's recipient was former FBI Director Robert Muller.

The award is named for Col. Sylvanus Thayer, the "Father of the Military Academy."
