Our Heart of America program brings U.S. State Department cultural exchange visitors, international university students, tourists and U.S. citizens to amazing destinations in the United States. The program fosters international goodwill by sharing the best of our culture. Travel itineraries are filled with fun social gatherings hosted by veterans and their families who warmly and enthusiastically welcome our overseas visitors to their communities. The personal connections created on these trips leave lasting impressions that transcend political conflicts. By giving foreign guests the opportunity to experience our way of life and the warmth of our hospitality, veterans continue their lifelong service, and demonstrate the true heart of America.
