UNIT 3: CULTURE: How people operate within the system!
Happy St. Patrick's Day! 17 March is a special day for many reasons. If you're Irish, or part Irish it's a day to celebrate that part of your heritage! It's an important day for my wife and I because we became engaged on this day 35 years ago! And . . . . in USGP it is the first day that some of you are "going virtual!" Remember that you will be navigating the USGP Home Page, the USGP Research Page, and the USGP Unit Blog on a regular basis from here on out!
