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.

The personal aspects of the war, which I couldn’t have understood without having the chance to speak with the witnesses. Being able to experience the emotions of the French people is what made this time more than just a history lesson.

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.
