About the Tour

THE #DEFENDFREEDOM ‘GET OUT THE VETS’ TOUR
Defend Freedom. Take Action.

This summer Concerned Veterans for America, patriotic rock-band Madison Rising and country music star Ayla Brown hit the road to galvanize Americans to take action in defense of freedom. We launched our original Summer Tour on Memorial Day weekend with an overwhelming response. The 10-city tour brought together veterans, military families, and patriotic Americans to share great music and great food–and hear a message of action from our guest speakers. “Not on Our Watch” will we allow American freedom and prosperity to fade away.

But, with the 10-city tour complete, we knew the mission was not over. So we added four additional stops across two weekends in September and October. The additional #DefendFreedom Tour events will feature powerful speakers who fully understand the cost of freedom and why we must fight for it. Speakers include New York Times best-selling author and decorated Army Ranger Sean Parnell, Navy SEAL Gold Star mother Karen Vaughn and CVA CEO and Fox News contributor Pete Hegseth. Their message, along with Madison Rising’s and Ayla Brown’s music, are a must-see. RSVP now to reserve your seat and then share #DefendFreedom with everyone you know.

Why a tour extension? Plain and simple—the America we fought for is coming off the rails. The founding ideals of liberty, personal responsibility, economic freedom and accountable leadership are wasting away before our eyes…and vets need to do something out it. It is time for veterans and military families to stand up and create a movement – the ‘Get Out The Vet’ movement. Our voices must be heard at the ballot box in November, and CVA is working to spread that message.  Together — through hard work, focused advocacy, and boots on the ground, we can ensure every veteran’s voice is heard. Will you join us?

Who is Concerned Veterans for America? We are veterans. We are the family members of those who proudly wore the uniform. We come from every branch of uniformed service, with service histories stretching from World War II to Iraq and Afghanistan. Our goal is to translate the experience, concerns and hopes of our fellow veterans and their families into a common vision of freedom and prosperity. Our website is www.cv4a.org.

We provide a unique perspective on the issues that threaten to cripple not only our national and economic security, but the spirit of opportunity and liberty that we fought to defend and Americans cherish. Veterans served our nation in uniform and CVA is providing a platform and opportunity for them—and all Americans—to continue the fight for freedom here at home. We honor their service by taking action to defend freedom.

CVA has full-time staff and volunteers all across the country who have worked countless hours to promote and defend the values that matter to veterans, and all Americans. This tour is designed to enable CVA to both reward hard working volunteers and to provide an opportunity to build new relationships—all in the service of veterans and the freedom they fought to defend. Back from the battlefield, veterans and their families must defend freedom for future generations—a task Washington, DC cannot seem to manage. If not us, then who?  If not now, then when?

Each event will be heavily promoted in advance and feature a CVA-hosted complimentary meal for all participants (“This One is On Us”), bringing together like-minded veterans, their families and Americans who are concerned about the future of our country. Each event will honor veterans and their families while highlighting the need to defend freedom and provide tangible ways for people to take action.
