FORT LEAVENWORTH, Kan.-- Forty-six international military students attending the Intermediate Level Education course here will receive their Command and General Staff College International Officer Graduate badges during a ceremony Dec. 9 at 10:30 a.m. in the Eisenhower Auditorium of the Lewis & Clark Center.  Lt. Gen. Robert L. Caslen Jr., Commander of the Combined Arms Center and Fort Leavenworth, is guest speaker.

The tradition of presenting international military students with a badge began in 1964 in response to interest by international military students who wanted a distinctive emblem to indicate they were graduates of the CGSC. Many other military colleges around the world have such emblems.

International military student participation in cooperative military studies in the United States originated at Fort Leavenworth with the arrival of Swiss Lieutenant Henri LeCompte in 1894.

Since then, international military students have become an integral part of the "Fort Leavenworth Experience" and to date more than 7,000 international officers from more than 150 countries have studied alongside their U.S. Army, sister service and U.S. interagency counterparts.
