The journey of a thousand miles starts with the first step. The development of the Soldiers to Statesmen Foundation is no different. That said while the impetus of starting a journey is quite often compelling, such dedication does not mean that said journey should be a reckless undertaking. Successful journeys are those that are approached strategically and methodically planned. To that end in this section you can view the developmental strategy for the Soldiers to Statesmen Foundation as it is currently envisioned. In keeping with the Soldiers to Statesmen founding principle of “informed civic participation”, core value of “informed intelligent patriotism” and operational guidelines of collaboration / ownership we invite your participation in the journey ahead. If you have any ideas that you think possess utility in realizing the Soldiers to Statesmen mission goals we would love to hear your thoughts. As always the individual will be given full credit and recognition for their contribution.
