Arlington, Va. — Concerned Veterans for America’s 2016 Defend Freedom Tour is coming to Houston Saturday, May 14, from 1:00-3:00 p.m. at the Redneck Country Club in Stafford, Texas.
Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) hosts the 2016 Defend Freedom Tour to deliver a simple message to veterans, military families, and all patriotic Americans – honor service, defend freedom, and, most importantly, take action to save our country.
It’s never been more apparent that the government is failing not only our veterans and military families, but all Americans. A crushing national debt threatens the strength and security of the United States in the near future – and worse, Congress and the current administration have shown almost no willingness to fix it.
The VA, the nation’s second largest federal agency, is still failing our veterans two years after it was revealed that veterans died on secret wait lists across the country. Meanwhile, the Department of Defense is unable to properly equip our troops in the field, many of whom are still serving in combat zones, due to inefficiencies and corruption within the DOD’s acquisitions processes. Clearly, based on these important issues, veterans need to make their voices heard – and CVA has a plan to do just that.
“Concerned Veterans for America believes veterans and American patriots have the ability to change the course of our country, now more than ever. Our 2016 Defend Freedom Tour, our largest events series and the lynchpin in our historic movement, is an opportunity for veterans,” said CVA’s Vice President for Legislative and Political Action Dan Caldwell.
“These events give veterans and patriots across the country the chance to inspire and be inspired, and better empowers them to share their passion for freedom and love for this country with their communities, all with the goal of advancing pro-freedom policies that will benefit all Americans.”
Admission to the Houston Defend Freedom Tour stop is family friendly, FREE, and includes delicious complimentary local fare. Doors open at noon.
