  International Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony
February 26th 2009
Guest Speaker
Gen Ashfaq Parvez Kayani Chief of the Army Staff, Pakistan
    Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, Chief of the Army Staff of Pakistan, was inducted into the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College International Hall of Fame in a ceremony held at Fort Leavenworth Feb. 26.

During remarks, Kayani reflected on his time at Fort Leavenworth for CGSC and at Fort Benning for the Infantry Officers’ Advanced Course.  Both, he believes, have helped him get where he is today.  “I’m very proud and honored to have these associations,” he said. “ … I think without these two courses [CGSC and IOAC], I may not have been able to do justice to my job.”
  The International Hall of Fame was established in 1973 jointly between USACGSC, The Greater Kansas City Chapter of the Military Order of the World Wars, and the CGSC Alumni Association (now CGSC Foundation). To be considered for induction the officer must be a resident graduate of CGSC who, through military merit, attained one of the highest positions of military importance in his country’s armed forces. Fifteen IHOF inductees have also gone on to become the chief executive of their country. Honored members are inducted according to precedence established by the year of their graduation.

Inductees are presented a CGSC honor certificate by the Military Order of the World Wars (MOWW) representative and, a Life Constituent Certificate and eagle statuette from the CGSC Foundation. Their framed portrait is displayed, along with previous members, in the International Hall of Fame located on the 3rd floor of Lewis & Clark Center, Command and General Staff College in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.
