Our Partners

The National Defense Network relies heavily on partners that are dedicating their corporate resources to support our active duty military, veterans, and their families. Together, we will continue to produce programming for active duty military and their families that entertains and informs through radio stations around the country and the Armed Forces Radio Network, and raise awareness for organizations that support our veterans and their “next mission” after serving in active duty.

The corporations we partner with share similar values, and recognize the importance of serving those who have served us. Please take a moment to learn more about these corporations and the support they continuously provide.

Wounded Warrior Project

Every warrior has a next mission. We know that the transition to civilian life is a journey. And for every warrior, family member, and caregiver, that journey looks different.

We are here for their first step, and each step that follows. Because we believe that every warrior should have a positive future to look forward to. There’s always another goal to achieve, another mission to discover. We are their partner in that mission.
