MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- The nation's top military officer is appearing at Kansas State University to give the latest installment of its Landon Lecture series.

Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, will speak Monday to students and faculty. Dempsey assumed the chairman position in October 2011 after serving briefly as Army chief of staff.

Dempsey most recently served as commander of the Army's Training and Doctrine Command. He graduated from the U.S. Military Academy in 1974.

The Landon Lecture is named for Gov. Alf Landon, a Republican who was Kansas governor from 1933 to 1937. Landon ran unsuccessfully for president in 1936, losing to Franklin D. Roosevelt.
