About four dozen international military officers have received a crash course in state government as part of a 10-month stay in Kansas.
The officers are studying at the U.S. Army's Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth.
They spent Thursday in Topeka, touring state government buildings and meeting with leaders including Gov. Sam Brownback, with whom they chatted briefly.
Fort Leavenworth has been hosting international officers for more than a century.
