Sidney T. Weinstein was a United States Army Lieutenant General. He is considered by many to be the father of the modern military intelligence corps.[1]

As a Major General, Weinstein served as Commander of the U.S. Army Intelligence Center and School during the period from 1984 to 1985. From 16 August 1985 to 30 September 1989, Weinstein, then a Lieutenant General, served as the Deputy Chief of Staff for Intelligence, Headquarters, Department of the Army. Although diminutive in height, Weinstein possessed a larger than life personality; one of his trademarks was a penchant for creative profanity. Upon his retirement, Weinstein became a senior executive with Electronic Warfare Associates in Chantilly, Virginia.

Weinstein died May 24, 2007, in his home in Great Falls, Virginia.

Weinstein is an inductee of the Military Intelligence Hall of Fame.[2]
