The purpose of the trip is to have participants motivate,
inspire, teach and support one another as they are exposed to different perspectives, veteran's services and the sights and
sounds of the Holy Land. The trips are secular and veterans from all services and all backgrounds are welcome to apply.
The following are the five areas that will be explored during each journey:
1. Education on living
with terrorism and understanding how important the fight is to keep terrorism from our borders.
2. Exploration of holy
sites, whether Christian or Jewish, and the opportunity to experience religion and find spirituality where it all began.
3. Visitation of Israeli
facilities available to disabled veterans as well as learning from Israeli activist veterans how they were able to turn their
dreams into reality.
4. Meetings with disabled Israeli veterans who have become business leaders. Our veterans will get advice on turning
their military service skills into marketable private sector experience.
5. Forging relationships with their American and Israeli peers
- creating a new unit that is built on support and post-war experiences.
