CULP 2012

President Obama,The Commander in Chief “in the 21st century, military strength will be measured not only by the weapons our troops carry, but by the languages they speak and the cultures that they understand.”

The Cultural Understanding and Language Proficiency (CULP) assignments were recently released and the Golden Knight Battalion is looking forward to an exciting Summer.

The six cadets going on CULP missions, their destination, and their mission are:

Cadets Kyle Chapman, Matt Flynn, Andrew Nelden, Kevin O’Connor, Eric O’Donnell, and Talylor Macci are headed overseas.

Their destinations include Cape Verde, Brazil, Guatemala, Tanzania, Tunisia, and Tajikistan.

Cadet Zanghi with Children in Bagamoyo, Tanzania

Missions will include humanitarian work with NGOs, teaching english, and military training.

To read about some of our past CULP trip participants check out Cadet David Pecka’s impressions of Tanzania and Cadet David Voorhee’s account of his trip to Costa rica.

We are hoping to hear some great stories from this years participants.
