The 353rd Civil Affairs Command, an Army reserve unit from Fort Bragg, North Carolina, receiving cultural property training from the U.S. Committee of the Blue Shield (USCBS). For this training, the USCBS partnered with the AIC and the Archaeological Institute of America to provide an overview of cultural property protection to this unit, which, like all Civil Affairs personnel, is responsible for cultural property issues in military theaters of operations.
