President Richard M. Nixon, in his commencement address to the Air Force Academy class of 1969 said, "I believe that every man in uniform is a citizen first and a serviceman second, and that we must resist any attempt to isolate or separate the defenders from the defended."

Nixon ended the draft four years later in 1973. Ironically that began an insidious process that transformed the American fighting man from citizen-soldier to second-class citizen. This site is dedicated to reversing that corrosive enterprise.
