TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Two leaders of the Kansas National Guard are in Armenia this week to help the former Soviet republic improve training of noncommissioned officers.

Lt. Col. Brent Salmans and Command Sgt. Maj. James Moberly are taking part in a workshop with members of Armenia's Defense Ministry. The goal is to develop training and leadership programs for Armenia's enlisted personnel as the nation transitions to a Western-style military.

Kansas has partnered with Armenia since 2003, exchanging delegations to share ideas and best practices for military and emergency management. The partnership is part of a National Guard Bureau program that pairs officials from participating states with developing nations to promote better relations.
