The Veterans International Exchange Program
Organized by: Sherman Banks
The program manages the selection of veterans and plans cultural and adventure activities to promote communications and connection among veterans and to support integration into civilian life. Many of the issues that are important to veterans are universal and global, therefore this program is designed to raise awareness of these issues and to bring light to the challenges facing our veterans. A key by-product of the exchange program is that veterans share best practices in their homelands for addressing the needs of military veterans, thus encouraging the improvement of veteran services in both countries. In 2013, several U.K. Veterans came to Arkansas, it is now our time for Arkansas veterans to travel to the U.K. In order for us to bring the 7-10 veterans to the U.K. this May we need to raise $45,000 for travel and lodging expenses.
