Everything is progressing slowly due to the lack of funds. By the end of this week, with this fundraising effort. Should be able to pull through with the major purchases for dining out. Cannot make deposit on Caterer until the funds are deposited. Uniform issues will be on next slide. Stress the importance of this fundraiser. We need 45-50 tickets purchased by the end of PT tomorrow. Friday PT gets cancelled if we accomplish our goal. Squad leaders should CALL their cadets and let them know. Do NOT send text messages. Tickets $25!
Here are the stipulations for the uniform for Class A’s. Make sure that company commanders put this information out as soon as they can.

The following information on the culture of Atropia/Ariana is for situational awareness and understanding. These cultural nuances are merely another tool to help Soldiers make decisions in the COE. These suggestions are intended solely as guidance to help assist the units in executing their directed missions. They are not an attempt to undermine or substitute for SOPs, ROE, or Commander’s Guidance.
CAUCASUS REGION CULTURE
Culture based upon loyalty to family, clan, tribe, and region before loyalty to nation
Old age is respected and honored; emphasis on obeying elders
Sense of time is casual and fluid; negotiations are normally slow and extended
No concept of personal space; there is no “3 foot American bubble”
Don’t move away if an Atropian “invades your space”
Public Display of Affection common between same sexes is accepted and often expected
Honor most important virtue: external public perception of honor
Never criticize in public
Hospitality closely linked to honor – refusal is an insult
Primary language is Spanish but many in region speak some English
Commander’s Intent: The purpose of this operation is to prepare MS III’s to conduct STX lane training IAW LDAC standards and prepare cadets for Georgia SHINE.
