Sen. Scott Brown is on a tour of Jordan and Israel.
The Massachusetts Republican is planning to meet with defense and foreign military leaders and government officials.
Brown is traveling as a member of the Senate Armed Services and Homeland Security committees and is accompanied by staff members.
A spokeswoman for Brown said he will be exploring areas where the United States can collaborate further on homeland security issues with the countries, two of the closest allies in the region.
It's not Brown's first trip abroad. During the Easter break, Brown traveled to Afghanistan and Pakistan with a delegation of lawmakers to visit with troops and meet local leaders.
The Senate is currently on break.
