Warrior Legacy Foundation

You've probably noticed the new avatar on the right side of this webpage. Thats the link to the Warrior Legacy Foundation, a new organization started by two very outstanding individuals, one of whom is a friend of mine. I signed up and I think you should too, if you feel the same about our Warriors, past, present and future.

Remember General George Washington's words:
“The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the Veterans of earlier wars to be treated and appreciated by their nation.”

Washington, DC 26 May 2009:

This Memorial Day we launch a new group, The Warrior Legacy Foundation- a non partisan organization committed to the protection, promotion and dignity of America’s Warriors. The membership of the group is open to anyone who believes in this cause.

Across every generation, at war and at peace, America has asked her citizens to protect liberty anddefend freedom at all costs. And no matter the terrain or political climate, America’s Warriors have met every challenge and made every sacrifice that was asked of them in order to defeat our enemies andprotect our way of life. The Warrior Legacy Foundation is a passionate advocate for the preservation and elevation of the hallowed legacy of the American Warrior Class. Join us and stand firm in defense of the heritage of those brave souls who have protected our sovereignty throughout our great nation’s history.

They have asked for nothing and have given us everything.

Below is a message from our Executive Director, David Bellavia:

“Welcome to The Warrior Legacy Foundation. By joining our ranks today you are standing shoulder to shoulder with the only organization in our great nation that is steadfastly dedicated to the protecting the legacy and honor of ALL those who have served this great nation. A Warrior is not defined by valor awards, era, deployments or branch of service. Rather a Warrior is someone dedicated to a noble code entrenched in honor and understands the importance of protecting our American way of life no matter what is asked of them. At WLF, there is no distinction in service to our nation. No generational bigotry. No valor elitism. One unapologetic message with millions of messengers. Veterans make the community in which they live a better place.”

WLF will work to educate all Americans about those who bought them the freedoms they enjoy each and every day. We will ensure that children grow up with the knowledge that brave men and women volunteer to face our enemies abroad so they can be safe here at home. We will capture the stories of all those who came before us and preserve them for posterity. We will never forget that the sacrifices of those who went to war bought the freedom and liberty we enjoy daily.
