Veterans International Exchange Programme
The Veterans International Exchange Programme took another giant step step forward this week with flights to and from America being generously provided by United Airlines. Additional support, both financially and 'in kind' has kindly been provided by SAGE (UK) LTD & CH2M HILL, thus enabling the trip to take place .Six Veterans will travel from the UK to Little Rock Arkansas in October this year and take part in a cultural exchange that will include linking up with other veterans and organisations in the USA learning and visiting a Veterans Treatment Court as guest of the presiding Judge, Judge McGowan. The veterans will then get the chance to learn new skills, give presentations and experience the tranquility of the great outdoors in Arkansas which is known across America as'The Natural State' The idea for the Veterans Exchange' Programme came about after discussing possibilities with Sherman Banks during Tony Wrights Winston Churchill Memorial Trust funded research visit in 2011. This visit was preceded by a visit from the US strategic steering/planning group in May this year. We thank all our supporters for this fantastic opportunity.
