Marines and sailors take part in an Islamic Cultural Intelligence Class aboard the USS Peleliu Feb. 16, in preparation for a possible deployment to the Middle East. The servicemembers learned about the Sunni, Shi?ite and other different ethnic groups in Iraq and other parts of the region. They received a short Arab and regional history lesson by experts from various government instructors and officials. The focus of the classes was to teach Marines and sailors a little bit about the environment they will possibly operate in, in a short period of time.
