Israel: FDD Military Trip/Mission (Mar 2-10)
The Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD), a Washington, D.C.-based think tank, is pleased to announce that it is accepting applications for its U.S. Military Trip to Israel, taking place March 2-10, 2017. This trip is part of FDD’s National Security Trip to Israel, launched in 2011, which has brought over 120 U.S. national security practitioners to Israel for a week of high-level meetings and experiential visits.
Israel is a leader in the development of innovative military tactics and national security strategy. Throughout the week, trip participants will travel around Israel to visit elite military installations, participate in meetings with high-level Israeli and American decision-makers, and take part in a counterterrorism training exercise with former Israeli Special Forces. Participants will leave the trip with a nuanced understanding of regional challenges and the practical skills to counter 21st century security threats.
Upon completion of the trip, participants will become members of FDD’s National Security Network, a young professionals alumni group comprised of nearly 200 alumni of FDD’s National Security Trip to Israel and National Security Fellows Program.
FDD will cover the cost of roundtrip airfare between Washington, D.C. and Tel Aviv, double hotel rooms, meals, and transportation on the ground in Israel. Participants are responsible for up to three independent meals in Israel.
Dates: March 2 – March 10, 2017
