ABSTRACT
The article discusses the importance of cultural awareness to the U.S. armed forces. Cultural awareness can improve the armed forces' ability to accomplish their mission by providing insight into the intent of the groups operating in the battle space, thereby allowing the military to get inside an adversary's decision cycle and outmaneuver him. Thus, the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command is working on implementing extensive training on cultural awareness at all levels across military installations.
