Cultural understanding

For the second year in a row, Guyana will host the Cultural Understanding and Language Proficiency (CULP) Program, as part of a partnership between the Florida National Guard, the U.S. Army Cadet Command, the U.S. Embassy in Guyana’s Security Cooperation Office, and the Guyana Defence Force (GDF).  A release from the US Embassy today said that the CULP Program in Guyana is planned for 47 personnel (42 cadets and 5 instructors), comprised of soon-to-be-commissioned Florida National Guard (FLNG) cadets, between July 11 and August 6, 2014.
