On Aug. 10, Wes Westmoreland, a trustee of the CGSC Foundation, invited a group from the Kansas City Community to tour. The group started their tour learning about the fort and all its rich history including the Santa Fe Trail, the historical homes and the former disciplinary barracks.
The next stop was the Lewis and Clark center where they had a chance to wander through the Hall of Fame, take photos in the MacArthur room, and peruse the Eisenhower Auditorium before heading upstairs to view the hallway gallery filled with paintings donated by each class.
The group next met with the Chief of Staff of the College, Jeff LaMoe, who walked the group through a briefing that explained the importance of education, training, and experience that accompanies each Army officer as they rise through the ranks. He also spoke about other schools and programs within Fort Leavenworth as well as the significance of CGSC’s international officer program.
The group’s last stop was to learn more about the international officer program by viewing the International Hall of Fame display and learning about the importance of this curriculum in building international relationships that benefit foreign policy and national security.
