ABILENE, Kan. (AP) _ Two military officers studying at Fort Leavenworth helped the Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum reach a research milestone.

Majs. John Ordonio and John Neal from the Army's School of Advanced Military Studies were honored Friday for helping the presidential library achieve 40,000 research visits. The officers were researching World War II operations.

The library opened in 1966. It is part of the National Archives and Records Administration System. The first research work was conducted by Myrl Bailey, a graduate student from Oklahoma State University, who researched the 1956 Suez Canal Crisis.

Library director Karl Weissenbach said interest in Eisenhower is growing, with a record 800 researchers visiting in 2011.
