Fort Leavenworth to honor foreign officer graduates

April 5, 2010


— Two more names are being added to the list of distinguished international graduates of the Army's Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth.

Two generals — one from Saudi Arabia, the other from Belize — have qualified for the International Hall of Fame as the top commanders of their nation's military. An induction ceremony is scheduled Thursday at Fort Leavenworth's Lewis and Clark Center.

Lt. Gen. Abdulrahman Bin Abdullah Bin Hammad Al-Marshed is commander of Saudi Arabia's land forces. He graduated from the Command and General Staff College in 1984.

Brig. Gen. Dario Oscar Tapia is a 2005 graduate of the college and commander of Belize's ground forces.

The hall of fame was established in 1973.
