FORT LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) -- Military officials are preparing to graduate the latest class of officers studying at the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College in northeast Kansas.
Nearly 335 officers and government employees, including 46 officers from other countries, will receive their degrees Thursday at Fort Leavenworth's Lewis and Clark Center. The officers began their instruction in February.
Gen. David Rodriguez, commanding general of the Army's Forces Command, will be the guest speaker.
The 10-month course teaches leadership skills to perform in a variety of military operations.
Fort Leavenworth has been educating international officers alongside U.S. officers since 1894.
