IMSD Class 13-02 Badge Ceremony
The international military students, received their CGSC International Officer Graduate badges during a ceremony Thursday 12 DEC 2013 at 10:30 a.m. in the Eisenhower Auditorium.

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 college. 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 in 1894. Since then, international military students have become an integral part of the “Fort Leavenworth Experience” and to date more than 7,500 international officers have studied alongside U.S. military and government civilian counterparts.
