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.

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.
