Perot pledges $6.1M to Army college in Kansas
Command and General Staff College Foundation

November, 2009

FORT LEAVENWORTH, Kan. — Texas billionaire and two-time presidential candidate Ross Perot has pledged $6.1 million to a private foundation to pay for programs at the Army's Command and General Staff College in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.

Army majors spend 10 months at the school preparing for unit command or staff positions.

A top general at the college says Perot's pledge will help the Army expand ethics training for officers and bolster cooperation between the military and government agencies such as the FBI.

The 79-year-old Perot says he made the pledge after discussing history with a class of officers at the college last month.

He says the college is doing a great job with important work.

Perot graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy and served four years in the Navy.
