As I grew older I began studying history and began to understand the motivations of the Founding Fathers, and I began to see that those founding principles were the basis and the underpinnings of the most prosperous country in the history of the world. but I also began to see how America had drifted away from those principles. God birthed in my heart a desire and a drive to see America return to the principles that made her successful.
To this end I attended Patriot Academy as a spectator for the first time in 2009, just watching the academy made me realize that there are people out there like me, with the drive and passion for the foundation oh this nation. When I returned to the academy in 2010 and then again in 2011, I was even more encouraged by meeting wonderful Patriots from all over the country, and by seeing young people continuing to sharpen themselves and hone their skills.
