TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ The number of students at Fort Leavenworth's
Command and General Staff College is growing.
One reason is an aggressive effort by the post's commanding general to attract civilian government employees.
Lt. Gen. William Caldwell the fourth has been encouraging government agencies to consider sending their staff members to Leavenworth for advanced education. The premise is that fighting the nation's wars takes more than a military solution.
This fall, the class that is dominated by close to 1,000 Army majors will include staff from several agencies, including the FBI and State Department.
Participation is part of what the military is calling a comprehensive approach to addressing national interests at home and abroad.
