Join us Sept. 16 for the third annual “Celebration of International Friendship” at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Kansas City. We’re proud to host this special event to welcome and celebrate the new class of international military officers from around the world who have come  to Fort Leavenworth to study military art and science at the U.S. Army’s Command and General Staff College.

KMBC-TV’s Rob Hughes is our master of ceremonies for the evening. Rob anchors the morning news show on KMBC-TV (ABC, Channel 9) in Kansas City and is also an officer in the National Guard. We are also fortunate to have the West Point Glee Club again as our featured entertainment for the evening. Their performance last year was very rousing and enjoyed by all in attendance.

Since 1895 international military officers from around the world have come each year to study at Fort Leavenworth. There is no other event like this where military officers from the U.S. and its allies from around the world come together to celebrate.

The evening will begin at 6:30 p.m. with an opportunity to meet and mingle with both international and U.S. officers of the class of 2017. The program will include the introduction of the Command and General Staff College International Students, guest speaker remarks and a special performance by the West Point Glee Club from the U.S. Military Academy.

Sponsorship opportunities are available.
