Ten journalists from six countries learned what it takes to become a military journalist. During their visit, they tour the Department of Defense's communications school. They observed military members learning all aspects mass communications - high-definition television production, photojournalism, newswriting, sketch drawing, and more in the department's high-tech schoolhouse.
Members of the media also interviewed the school's international students and participated in a panel discussion about public affairs versus propaganda with instructors and leaders. One journalist said it was "impressed" with the program and that it was nice to see a "more creative" side of the military.
