President, Freedom Alliance
Tom Kilgannon is the President of Freedom Alliance, an educational and charitable organization which honors and supports America’s military and advocates for a strong national defense.
Freedom Alliance saves lives and military marriages by providing recreational rehabilitation to combat-wounded heroes and counseling retreats for military couples. The organization helps troops overcome the wounds of war by providing all-terrain wheelchairs to amputees; donating mortgage-free homes to combat-wounded veterans; and shipping care packages to troops deployed overseas, among other projects.
In addition, Freedom Alliance has awarded millions of dollars in college scholarships to the sons and daughters of America’s heroes who have lost life or limb for our country.
In 2017, Kilgannon was appointed by House Speaker Paul Ryan to the National Commission on Military, National, and Public Service. In its Final Report, the Commission offered Congress and the President 164 recommendations to improve the Selective Service System, civics education, and ways to foster a greater ethos of service among America’s youth.
Tom is a graduate of New York University and has appeared on numerous television and radio programs. He has published dozens of opinion columns and is the author of Diplomatic Divorce: Why America Should End Its Love Affair With the United Nations.
