FORT LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) -- Two international military officers, including one who commanded units in Afghanistan, are set to be inducted into the International Hall of Fame at Fort Leavenworth.

The honorees are Gen. Tom Middendorp, chief of defense in the Netherlands, and Lt. Gen. Joseph Kasaon, commander of the Kenyan army. They'll be recognized April 25 during a ceremony at the Army's Command and General Staff College.

Middendorp graduated from the college in 1997 and was named chief of defense in the Netherlands in 2012. He was promoted to general after serving in Afghanistan in 2009. He also led units in Iraq and the Balkans.

Kasaon graduated from the college in 1990 and was named commander of Kenya's army in 2011.
