Cadet Guenther went on a culture, understanding, and language proficiency (CULP) course in Arta, Djibuti this summer along with several other Cadets from different ROTC programs. He went through a series of different training events that ranged from ruck marching to AK-47 weapons training.
CDT Guenther summarizes his expierence with the following statement. "The biggest thing that I learned from CULP experience is how to approach things from a diplomatic way, and understand that different, does not mean wrong. I was exposed to entirely different cultures both on the civilian and military side. While other countries may do things differently than we do in the U.S., it does not make them less effective, or mean that our way is always better.
