Two leaders of the Kansas National Guard are in Armenia this week to help the former Soviet republic improve training of non-commissioned officers.

Lt. Col. Brent Salmans and Command Sgt. Maj. James Moberly are taking part in a workshop with members of Armenia's Defense Ministry. The goal is to develop training and leadership programs for Armenia's enlisted personnel as the nation transitions to a Western-style military.

Kansas has partnered with Armenia since 2003, exchanging delegations to share ideas and best practices for military and emergency management. The partnership is part of a National Guard Bureau program that pairs officials from participating states with developing nations to promote better relations.
