U.S., British military officers conducting training exercises at Fort Leavenworth

March 2, 2011


— British and U.S. military officers are conducting their semi-annual training exercise at Fort Leavenworth.

Through March 10, officers from the Army’s Command and General Staff College will conduct military exercises with about 200 faculty and students from the British Intermediate Command and Staff College.

The exercise is known as Eagle Owl. Using a fictional NATO-developed scenario, the officers must plan and execute operations for stability, counterinsurgencies and fighting armed militias.

The British officers also will play the Kansas City Rugby Football Club in a friendly match during their stay.
