This is everyone’s fight. If you’re a combat veteran looking to give back in training or on the front lines, or whether you support the effort financially, we need you all. Not since Hitler has the world seen such a massive force invade another, indiscriminately slaughtering women, and children. Now for the first time in history, we have a nuclear armed tyrant who not only refuses to recognize an entire people’s right to independence and liberty in Ukraine, but who seeks to dismantle the global values and systems that bind people in representative governments everywhere.
Our time has come to face the same evil, and we will defeat. We will answer the call.
Who Are We?
We are a private group of US combat veterans who believe in liberty and the freedom of people everywhere from tyranny. We are actively working to supply and train small numbers of citizens in Ukraine with the means to defend themselves and their families. While government aid has been great, there are still many Ukrainians without access to arms, supplies, and specialized insurgency training. We hope to address that gap by training the trainers and empowering small teams with what they desperately need to help fight back.
If you’re looking to join with individuals willing to risk it all, please consider making a donation to support the costs of training, transportation, and supplies. For security reasons, we do not have social media and are unable to disclose further information about this group and it’s members are private. Thank you for your trust and financial support.
Join us, and answer the call.
“It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.” – Mark Twain
Why do we Fight?
No one is free until we are all free. Free how, you ask? Free to say what you want, believe and practice what religion you want, to choose your government, and live without fear or oppression. Imagine living in a country where you can vanish, without trial or rights, from a city street as easily as pulled from your home, and never know why. Or where everything you hear and see of the world’s news is dictated and falsified to manipulate you for the aims and protections of a small group who rule mercilessly.
Imagine a place where you’re told how to look, what to wear, what to think and say, and even when and how much you can do simple things that we take for granted- like watch tv or play video games- and if you don’t conform, you disappear.
This is the reality in today’s authoritarian, nuclear armed regimes. They don’t believe in your pursuit of happiness and a just future for you and your posterity. The freedoms you’ve enjoyed are a threat to their power and their ambitions, which stretch beyond their own borders. Journalists and political opponents have been tracked and killed. Elected representatives are bribed, elections interfered with, economies threatened, domestic industries shuttered, and business and government secrets stolen on an industrial scale to work towards one goal: global dominance.
Ask yourself where you fit in to a world like this. We’re part of this world: we can fence ourselves in, but we can’t fence it out forever.
We believe there’s good in this world, and that it’s worth fighting for. Answer the Call.
A New Age: The Global Citizen
We live in a connected, digital world that has become smaller, widening our sense of identity and international understanding. The common values, stories, struggles, and hopes we share with people around the world bind us together, transcending borders and a singular national identity.
These beliefs do not belong to any single nation – they are global. Should a people seeking basic rights and freedoms who value justice be denied the support to peacefully exist simply because of where they were born? We don’t believe so. What makes an American – really- isn’t where they were born, but what they believe and how they live their lives. While the nation has strayed from this path throughout its history, this only underscored the importance of learning from our past, remembering where we came from and our own beginnings as people seeking basic rights. America would not exist today without our founding fathers and brave people who sacrificed – and not all of them were American.
Americans and free people everywhere must not allow liberty to be trampled and people to be subjugated by authoritarian murderers with no regard for humanity.
The struggle against tyranny echoes throughout history, from Spartacus’s rebellion to the American Revolution, to the fight against Hitler. Their stories will never be forgotten, and their impact on history are everlasting. People before us answered the call.
We Take No Pleasure
War is hell and human life is precious. No one should revel in taking life. It is a disgusting but necessary affair as the Russian military and thugs invade a peaceful people and murder innocents along with combatants. However, let us be clear: Russian soldiers and the Russian people are not the enemy; they are pawns of evil men who have been fed lies. Russia and it’s people have so much potential to offer the world, and their chief export must not be fear, death, and destruction. Until their war machine is crippled and peace is restored, the fight against brutal authoritarian invaders must continue.
Now is our time.
