"The counter-terrorism trip to Israel was really an interesting experience. I have always wanted to go to see Israel and had an interest in intelligence work and this program was a way to combine those two desires and meet them. I believe at first many of us felt a little awkward about being in a different country, I know I did. But as the days began to pass, the more I felt comfortable being there. In the short amount of time that we were in Israel, we really did get to see alot of things and learned alot about security at various places in Israel as well as how different the emergency management is in Israel. One of the things to expect from the trip is to realize the differences between the United States and Israel's security and defense posture. I really recommend this particular trip to anyone who is looking for an experience that will be an eye opening one."
