Monday, March 26, 2012 the Danforth Center had the privilege to host 50 naval officers from 48 different countries representing the Naval Command College (NCC), one of four resident colleges at the U.S. Naval War College.
Every year, the U.S. Chief of Naval Operations invites select senior-grade military officers from around the world to attend the NCC's 10-month graduate curriculum, which includes a Field Studies Program (FSP) in which the students visit important sites across the United States.
The objective of field studies travel is to illustrate how the United States functions in all respects including democratic ideals of elected government, internationally recognized human rights, free enterprise, judicial system, industry, diversity of society, press, political parties and interest groups, media and civil-military relations.
St. Louis was one of only 15 U.S. cities that the officers, part of the 2012 Class of the Naval Command College toured which included visits to Boeing and the Arch.
