Soldiers For The Truth is a grass-roots educational organization started by a small group of concerned veterans and citizens to inform the public, the Congress, and the media on the decline in readiness of our armed forces. It is a non-profit organization under section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal revenue Code.
Inspired by the outspoken idealism of retired Colonel David Hackworth, SFTT aims to give our service people, veterans, and retirees a clear voice with the media, Congress, the public and their services.
As expressed in the title of Hackworth’s first book, “About Face” when he courageously faced his nation’s decline during the Vietnam War, SFTT is facing relevant political and military issues head-on to prevent a further decline in readiness and national security.
SFTT is headed by retired Army Colonel David H. Hackworth.
The SFTT newsletter is called “Defense Watch”. Voice Of The Grunt, originally conceived as David Hackworth’s personal newsletter, is an integral part of the newsletter and remains the forum for the troops on the ground. The Defense Watch newsletter’s main goal is to make YOUR concerns heard, using the full spectrum of the Internet. In addition, the newsletter addresses the broader perspectives and issues that require political debate and involvement at higher levels.
