Cadet Bargar Travels To West Africa With Fellow CULP Participants
This past summer, Junior Cadet Owen Barger traveled to the West African country of Benin along with eight other Cadets from all across the country as part of the Army ROTC Cultural Understanding Language Program (CULP). While in Benin, the group worked with the Beninese Army. During the weekdays the Cadets spent the mornings teaching English to the Cadets at the National Academy of Toffo. The academy hosts soldiers from all over West Africa who, upon graduation, become officers in their country’s army. Afternoons were spent working alongside the African Cadets in service projects that helped the surrounding communities, planting crops that the doctors in the area use to provide much needed medicine to the people, and visiting local villages. On weekends the Cadets went on various excursions to experience the West African culture. Activities included visiting historical cities of Abhomey, the birthplace of voodoo in Ouidah, and going to a national soccer game in the biggest city, Cotonou.
Congratulations, Cadet Bargar, on being selected as a participant in the Army ROTC Cultural Language Program.
