Maj. Gen. H.R. McMaster, commander of the maneuver Center of Excellence, has been named to the 2014 Time 100 annual list of the most influential people in the world.

McMaster has been the commander at Fort Benning since June 2012. He has been appointed to receive his third star and reassigned to the Training and Doctrine Command in the summer.

The list of names appear in the May 5 issue of TIME magazine which is available on newsstands and tablets on Friday. It also is available online here.

In its 11th year, the list recognizes the activism, innovation and achievement of the world's most influential individuals.

In the past, the magazine said, "The TIME 100 is not a list of the most powerful people in the world, it's not a list of the smartest people in the world, it's a list of the most influential people in the world. They're scientists, they're thinkers, they're philosophers, they're leaders, they're icons, they're artists, they're visionaries. People who are using their ideas, their visions, their actions to transform the world and have an effect on a multitude of people."
