Founded in Fort Wayne, Ind., the organization will have operators around the world meet in public locations, such as shopping centers, parks, hospitals and sporting events, to allow people in their communities to thank and express support to members of the military – as well as veterans, members of the reserves, the National Guard and coalitions forces.
ARMAD also hopes to educate our youth about the sacrifices present and past generations have made to secure America's freedom.
ARMAD has been involved in Rally For America, in Fort Wayne. The event attracted more than 25,000 attendees.
