International Military Students

 

Congratulations on your selection to attend the U.S. Army Command and General Staff Officer Course (CGSOC).  Your selection is indicative of your past achievement and future potential.  As you embark on a unique journey, you can experience first class education and a first rate intercultural exchange.  Take advantage of your year in Leavenworth, an opportunity you, and in many cases your family, will grow and benefit from each passing day.

 

You will train at the Army Staff College, but you will study and experience the American lifestyle, visit and become familiar with American businesses and better understand the government of your host country.  We realize adjustments are necessary to live here among your American friends, adjustments as simple as converting from a metric system to the U.S. system to learning how to drive on the "right" side of the road.  Adjustments may appear difficult at times, particularly in the beginning, but certainly not insurmountable.

 

The International Military Student Division (IMSD) staff and I will keep in mind that you are making adjustments living in the United States and will make ourselves available to assist you during this transition period.  There are many every day "situations" the IMSD staff can help with, we've helped many who preceded you, so please, take advantage of our knowledge and visit our staff who is willing to care for your needs.

 

Welcome!  I hope you have an enjoyable and memorable year while visiting and living in Leavenworth, Kansas.

 

Sincerely,

James F. Fain
Chief, International Military Student Division
