NEWPORT, R.I. -- Students from the Naval Command College, Class of 2010, wore traditional clothing and prepared culinary samples from their countries to share with their fellow students, sponsors, and Naval War College faculty and staff at International Night on March 11.

Each year the Naval War College brings 100 to 150 international officers to the U.S. from around the globe. They study strategy, warfare, decision making and operational art. Equally important, they learn how the United States works as a country through the field studies program. Each officer is greatly influenced by what they see and learn while in the U.S. Each one forms strong bonds with their U.S. and international classmates. They maintain these professional and fraternal ties, remaining in contact for the rest of their lives.  International Night is one way students share their cultural heritage with each other.
