About

The political and policy debate in America is missing the voices of veterans. From the China and Russia threats to the Iran deal and the rise of “woke” activism in our military and intelligence institutions, the men and women who have fought and sacrificed for America do not have a platform. The war does not end on the battlefield. We continue the fight today for the same reason we fought in battle: For love of country and devotion to protecting our freedom, way of life, and prosperity. Today’s fight is against progressives and leftists who seek to destroy American unity at home & strength abroad.
