The Benjamin Gettler Annual International Policy Trip is enabled by a grant from the Gettler Family Foundation in Cincinnati, Ohio to bring a high-level delegation of retired senior military officers and civilian national security experts to a country that is important to U.S. national security and/or the U.S.-Israel relationship. Upon completion of each trip, the group will share its findings and recommendations with policymakers and opinion leaders in Washington, D.C. and across the country. Benjamin Gettler previously served as Chairman of JINSA, and he was one of the organization’s most active and influential leaders for many years.
