POST 9/11 DECK OF 52
Businesses & Charities Launched by the Military Community
Throughout history, decks of cards
brought awareness, served as a rally point and galvanized the troops & our nation.
Now, there is a new Bicycle Collectible.
A new generation of Frontline Leaders.
After traveling across the country on my book tour, I became even more convinced that the military community brings an unmatched currency to our local communities, culture, and economy.
The idea came to me that an interesting way to continue the conversation could be tied to my first deployment.
And, the original 2003 Deck of 52 Most Wanted Iraqi playing cards.
The post 9/11 Frontline Generation abounds with Frontline Leaders stepping up here at home.
As a spin-off from the 2003 deck, let's flip the script and bring awareness to successful and impactful members of the military community,
and highlight 52 post 9/11 businesses and charities.
Each card represents a deeper narrative about the
post 9/11 military community—stories about grit, determination, passion, compassion, innovation, and leadership.
