Forty-two U.S. military cadets completed a training course at the Colonel Robert Mitchell Jungle and Amphibious Training School (CRMJATS), as part of the Cultural Understanding and Language Proficiency (CULP) Programme.
Under the guidance of the CRMJATS leadership, the Cadets received training and familiarization on a broad range of survival skills. This training phase culminated with a 48-hour exercise that tested the Cadets’ mental fortitude, personal courage, and newly-acquired skill sets.
The Cadets had previously completed joint training with the Guyana Defence Force cadets at the Colonel John Clarke Military School (CJCMS) located in Tacama.
Guyana is hosting the CULP Programme as part of the longstanding 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).
The CULP Programme seeks to build a foundation to support understanding, cohesion, and meaningful partnership between the next generation of U.S. and Guyanese military officers.
During the Programme in Guyana, U.S. Cadets live, work, and have cultural exchanges with fellow Guyana Defence Force Cadets, as well as other elements of the GDF.
Activities under the CULP Programme typically include humanitarian service events with Guyanese partners, military-to-military training, and education on the social, cultural, and historical aspects of Guyana.
