Guest Blog Post - Lucia Dougherty

The JCOC trip had so many outstanding moments, such as the visit to Guantanamo and seeing first hand the care, compassion and restraint the military men and women demonstrated under stressful circumstances; staying overnight on the George Washington aircraft carrier; repelling with the Colombian military and riding on a black hawk helicopter.

However, the most important experience for me is the ealization that our military is held in great esteme in many countries in this hemisphere where they are helping diplomacy by building schools, providing medical care and assisting the local military with equipment and services.

My fellow participants and leaders of this trip from SOUTHCOM and the DOD made this trip a once in a lifetime experience.
