Abstract : Researched, prepared, and presented by interdisciplinary faculty members of the USAF Academy, this report was designed to prepare the 133rd Tactical Control Flight for its deployment to Saudi Arabia. One of a series which deals with the intercultural education program for deploying ANG and AF units, this program addressed basic knowledge about the culture of Saudi Arabia (including geography, history, politics, law, religion, and language) and emphasized the importance of developing a positive attitude by providing accurate knowledge about Saudi Arabia and increasing sensitivity about a different cultural group.
