About the American Soldier Network
The Vision of the American Soldier Network is to take the politics OUT of supporting our troops/veterans. They celebrate, support and thank our heroes by raising awareness to the needs they have upon returning from deployment, recovering from injury, invisible wounds and reintegration into civilian life.
Their founder is the civilian “embedded” with our veterans, wounded warriors, families of the fallen and troops here at home. They are a grass roots organization run completely on donations and with 0 paid staff. They operate on a skeleton budget yet we have touched between 1,000 and 3,500 (a modest count) troops annually that they know of. Their reach often extends farther than they can actually account for from outreach projects supporting enlisted troops, special forces, wounded warriors, Vietnam veterans, children of the fallen, to getting into schools with their Junior Patriot program, sharing patriotism and the message of “Freedom Is Not Free” as well as taking Patriotic Pups Eddy and Hazel to share of the many animals who serve to our youth, there is not a day of the they are quiet.
