The U.S. Army Sergeants Major Academy welcomed another iteration of students August 28 for their exclusive Sergeants Major Course and broke two records in doing so. The first record broken was for the size of the class — 713, the largest class in the history of the Academy. The second record broken was the number of international students, 59, again the largest in the history of the Academy. Those international students represent 46 partner nations, including three who sent representatives for the first time — Iraq, Norway and Senegal.
