NLSC Staff attends Workshop in Fort Polk, LA

The National Language Service Corps’ (NLSC) staff participated in a Regionally Aligned Forces (RAF) Training Enablers Workshop from Wednesday, October 14th – Friday, October 16th in Fort Polk, Louisiana. Participation in The RAF Workshop afforded the NLSC an opportunity to present a brief and learn more about fellow participants’ organization.

The training enablers workshop also provided insight on the current and pending training requirements of RAF and a chance for face-to-face interaction with representatives from US Army 162nd Infantry Brigade. The NLSC recently assisted the 162nd Infantry Brigade’s cultural training efforts by filling a requirement for 12 Russian-speaking Members to provide regional expertise and participate in role-playing scenarios.

The NLSC’s Plans & Policy representatives gained an in-depth understanding of future requirements for the 162nd Infantry Brigade as well as an appreciation of the importance of language and culture in the mission of the 162nd Infantry Brigade executing security cooperation. The NLSC anticipates an upcoming assignment assisting with training in regional cultural expertise, basic instruction, and role-playing in four African countries. The NLSC expects to support the assignment via its current membership.
