    I know that there have been rumors about limiting training to 8 man units or smaller because of Sequestering. Will this affect CULP at all this summer? I know that the orders for everyone else in my group say budget approval pending, however we are unsure whether or not the CULPs have already been budgeted in for the FY or not.

    Thanks and Gig Em

    1,200 applicants are reported to have been selected for this summer, similar to last year's total. However, I'm told that there may be cuts of 30%, which would likely affect some of those already selected. I don't know whether this means entire trips will be cancelled or if some already selected will be dropped. Or maybe like Xenophon's Anabasis (hint: summer reading), they'll pay your way over but you'll have to fight your way back home.

    My DS was selected for a CULP trip to Bulgaria this coming summer. He also went on a CULP trip last summer as an MSI. About 3-4 weeks after receiving his assignment, he was notified that CULP slots were being withdrawn from any cadet who had gone in a prior year.

    I do not know how many cadets were affected by this. In his case, since he received a CDQC slot shortly thereafter, he was going to turn down the CULP slot anyway.

    I am going to CULP and Airborne this summer. We are sending a pretty good number of cadets to summer training.
