As an American on the opposite side of the Atlantic its very difficult to travel to Europe for YATA events and discussions, and even more difficult to meet directly with top military and civilian decision makers, let alone heads of state. It's truly amazing that the European YATA members have access to this. Now that there's a North American member on the YATA board perhaps some of that will change.
