"Liberty, when it begins to take root, is a plant of rapid growth." -G.W.
The goal of this site is to create a community of active military and vets who are a strong force for freedom in American politics. We hope to do this by creating a place where you can easily post and discuss your views as reports (aka diaries or blogs) and post and discuss news articles you find interesting.
Building upon the success of the initial Appeal For Courage effort, we will create a community for currently serving military & vets to become active in the political process which affects us, often in matters of life or death. The community is focused on promoting valid political participation of military members within regulations and the spirit of a civilian-led military. We welcome vets of all stripes and vets have all the same rights/privileges of currently military (after all, we’ll all be vets one day).
In addition we welcome anyone to post comments and voice their opinion, civilian and military alike.
For currently serving military your freedom of speech is probably greater than you may think, simply ensure anything you say conforms with UCMJ Article 88. In brief, it says you shall not use "contemptuous words" against any elected official or anyone with 'secretary' in front of their name.
We will use as light a hand as possible in moderating comments.
Thank you! We look forward to discussing the day’s events with you!
