The next generation of warrior leaders

In this critical wartime era, highly educated professionals in domestic leadership positions will be equivalent to and as critical as those in our military who fight on other fronts. Competent, motivated leadership in national security, counter-terrorism, statecraft and economics will forge a path to success for the nation.

There are no better people to serve in these roles than our combat veterans, who have shown tenacity, toughness, bravery, dedication, and leadership fighting to support the values and to protect the freedoms our great nation has to offer.

Warriors... In Their Own Words

Pantano At War

Our mission is to honor our warriors

Warriors in their own words.  This is a presentation outlining a project to highlight the brave men and women who spend their lives protecting our freedoms.
