Committee to Support and Defend

America’s Constitutional Conservative Veterans Organization


Join the Committee to Support and Defend!

Our military is in trouble. As an all-volunteer force, our military men and women choose to step forward to defend our freedoms. Now, with record inflation and weak support from the federal government, it’s up to us to volunteer in similar fashion to help our servicemembers, their families and our veterans.

By joining the Committee to Support and Defend, you are directly supporting their needs.

100% of your tax-deductible membership dues go directly to support programs. Thanks to the generous support from other donors, we are blessed to invest every penny of membership fees into direct support initiatives.

Please consider joining the Committee today for just $17.75 per year.

Why 1775? That is when our armed forces were officially founded!

The Tenacious and the Timid

August 15, 2023|

I do not think there can be any debate about the corruption of the Biden Crime Syndicate. Yet, Republicans are told to proceed cautiously.

America’s Submarine Crisis

August 14, 2023|

Greetings to our patriotic CSD members, this past weekend I spoke to an organization called Combat Marines Outdoors that takes struggling veterans on hunting and fishing trips in Texas. The topic of my presentation was one word, "Priorities". When it pertains to our national security and military readiness, it is apparent that the priorities of this Biden administration are severely lacking. Biden and his inept SecDef are more focused on funding abortion, gender transition therapies and surgeries, and cultural marxist programs and other words the leftist ideological agenda.

10 Shocking Examples of Wokeism in the U.S. Military

August 11, 2023|

Earlier this year, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley—previously branded by President Donald Trump as a woke “television general”—took to CNN to complain that accusations of wokeism in the U.S. military are vastly overhyped. But despite Milley’s claim that the military has not been infected by woke ideology, there is a growing mountain of evidence pointing to the military brass’s descent into social, cultural, and political leftism. Here are ten prominent examples that every American should be aware of.

Stakes Are Set for Showdown on Military Funding

August 11, 2023|

Perhaps the biggest looming battle when Congress returns from August recess is the passage of the annual National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) – and specifically funding for far-left social programs that Democrats are determined to include.



Sign This Petition: It’s Time to End DEI and Woke Politics in Our Military!

LTC Allen West, Executive Director, Committee to Support and Defend

As America faces looming threats from “foreign” adversaries/enemies, our military is under assault from a culture war stemming from “domestic” ideologically inspired political policies and practices. If not stopped now, these policies will forever change the military’s warrior ethos essential to performing its mission of deterring aggression and, failing that, fighting and winning our Nation’s wars. Our military must be laser-focused on one mission — readiness, undiminished by the culture war engulfing our country.

I speak from experience. I come from a legacy of combat service in defense of this nation — four generations of my family are combat veterans. I, myself served in the U.S. military and continued my public service as a Member of the U.S. Congress and held a seat on the House Armed Services Committee. I bring this history of service to bear when I say this divisive policy must end.

As the Executive Director of the Committee to Support and Defend (CSD) — America’s constitutional conservative veterans organization — I stand alongside tens of thousands of CSD’s veteran service members who respectfully request that Congress, pursuant to its constitutional powers “…to raise and support Armies…” and “… to provide and maintain a Navy…,” take legislative action to remove all diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) programs from the Department of Defense (DoD). Additionally, we ask that you ensure that no DEI-related policies, programs, or funding are included in the 2024 NDAA.
