I learned an incredible amount on this trip that I will take with me forever. But I think the most significant thing about the trip was the bond I made with the other kids. I feel like I’ve known them my whole life, and I am sure we will remain great friends for a long time.


1999 student, Blythewood SC

I am used to the same people, lower to middle class kids, and never seeing really a better side of the world. So the most significant thing to me about this trip was me learning to love another culture other than ours.

student, 2011, Salisbury MD

This experience helped me prepare for the “real world.” I came into it not knowing anyone, but left with great, close friends. I learned a lot more about the war while still having fun. It was also really great to see how much the French appreciated what the Americans did for them.
