Kelsey Grammer Leadership Fellows

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.

While all veterans' service and sacrifice is respected and honored in this time of war, the Kelsey Grammer Leadership Fellows program seeks those members of the armed forces who have actually engaged the enemy in combat and have qualified for the Combat Infantryman Badge (USA), the Combat Action Ribbon (USMC), or an equivalent award; or those who have served in a military support capacity which has placed them in harm's way, i.e., in life-threatening circumstances. Combat veterans have demonstrated the highest commitment possible to the service of America and deserve the opportunity to attain the same high levels of service and success in our nation's leadership positions.

For many, the costs of obtaining a graduate degree are prohibitively high, and tuition is not the only obstacle. Veterans pursuing graduate study rarely have the financial resources to pay their living expenses without working, especially if they have families to support. Benefits available under even the new expanded version of the G.I. Bill are insufficient to meet these financial realities. The Kelsey Grammer Leadership Fellows program, working with The LOOC Foundation,  will bridge this serious gap.

Mr. Grammer,

Thank you so very much for your determination to help the outstanding men and women that have served our country, move into leadership positions to represent the citizens of The United States of America.

I no longer donate to the RNC.......that's like giving money to the drug dealer on the corner to buy a hot meal for the druggie....any money I have to contribute goes directly to the candidate.

The KGLF program will be at the top of my list for donations, and to make friends and family aware of the program as well.

And, I have said for the past year, we need to convince General Petraus to consider running for President, would love to see the left wing media cover that story!

Best regards,

Jeanie Beck

I think this is a great concept. Besides donating, what else can we do to help encourage and propel former warriors into the vacuum of America's political structure?

Message for Mr. Grammer:

Should your travel schedule find you in Frazier's old haunt of Seattle this November 7th, The U.S. Marine Corps Support Group would be very pleased to have you as our guest at our Marine Corps Birthday luncheon. Our Support Group's Marine veteran membership supports through donations the Wounded Warrior Semper Fi! fund, the VA Fischer House, the USMC Junior ROTC High School program and the Bianchino MECEP scholarship program.

If this can work into your schedule, please let me know and we can provide a "somewhat" more formal invitation!

There is an Elephant missing here called the Constitution (and Bill of Rights) I see nothing on your website pertaining to our precious liberties, freedoms and allegiance to these documents. Please explain.
