  International Military Student Badge Ceremony CGSOC Class 10-01

IM Badge
  Guest Speaker
Major General John Caligari

Head of Modernisation and Strategic
Planning for the Australian Army
     
 
  Sixty-seven international military students who attended the Intermediate Level Education course at The Command and General Staff College received their International Officer Graduate badges during the ceremony June 10 at 10:30 a.m. in the Eisenhower Auditorium of the Lewis and Clark Center.  Maj. Gen. John Caligari, Head of Modernisation and Strategic Planning for the Australian Army and 1995 graduate of CGSC, was the distinguished guest speaker for the event.

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 LeComte 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 have studied alongside U.S. military and U.S. interagency counterparts.
