Abstract:

Cultural awareness training is inadequate in current and future conflicts which require education in cultural knowledge through immersion, interaction, and integration. Soldiers and marines, warfighters, must have the ability to operate within foreign cultures that are significantly different. Enemy that operate within a foreign population have inherent cultural advantages. Education in cultural knowledge mitigates those advantages.
