The Veterans for Trump endorsement of Rep. Marjorie Greene was issued today by the national veterans organization. Veterans for Trump was founded in 2015 as part of the original Trump Campaign Collation and later operated a non profit known as Veterans for America First. Currently the group is part of the 2024 Trump campaign collation under the direction of Admiral Charles Kubic their national spokesman and President Stan Fitzgerald , a retired police detective. The organization speaks for millions of conservative veterans and is considered an influential primary endorsement.

The organization also has a Georgia state chapter led by attorney Jared Craig who will be carrying the endorsement of rep Greene at the state level as well.

Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene spoke last evening at her town hall event, for constituents only, in Cobb County Georgia. Veterans for Trump's Donna and Stan Fitzgerald were among the invited guests. Upon arriving some in the large crowd awaiting entry were expressing their dismay with the debt ceiling vote. Rep Greene took the town hall stage and explained in detail all the factors why she voted the way she did and when the event ended her speech and Q&A session was met with a standing ovation, no further dismay from her voters. The complete speech can be viewed at

"Marjorie was aware that 12 Republicans were signing onto a petition by the Democrats if this was not passed which would have given everything the Democrats and Establishment wanted. Marjorie voted the right way resulting in a 1% decrease and an attachment for dividing future omnibus bills to have sections voted on. This was a win for American conservatives," said Pamela Reardon, a Cobb County Georgia 2020 Presidential Delegate who attended the town hall.

"Congresswoman Greene has always been loyal to our country, her constituents, our America First agenda and to President Trump. Rep. Greene stands with our veterans and first responders; in fact, she gave personal assistance from her office to a vet at the town hall meeting last night. At Veterans for Trump we appreciate loyalty and those who fight for our country like Marjorie does so we are announcing today our organizational endorsement for the 2024 congressional election cycle," said Stan Fitzgerald president Veterans for Trump.

The Veterans team will be set up at the Georgia state GOP convention June 9th and 10th in Columbus Georgia with FBI Whistleblower Steve Friend doing meet and greets at their tables. The Group also sponsored the John Fredericks bus tour which will be at the convention promoting some of their nationally endorsed candidates including Caroline Jeffords, Salleigh Grubbs, Marci McCArthy and Vikki Consiglio.

First Horizon Earns Double Honor from Parity.Org

Best Company for Women to Advance and Best Company for People of Color to Advance

MEMPHIS, Tenn., May 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — First Horizon Corp. (NYSE: FHN or “First Horizon”) today announced it has been named to both the 2023 Parity.Org Best Companies for Women to Advance list and to the first-ever Parity.Org Best Companies for People of Color to Advance list. First Horizon is one of just 18 companies to earn a spot on both honor rolls.

The ParityLIST program recognizes organizations that are creating the culture and conditions in which underrepresented groups can rise. Companies are rated across a comprehensive rubric covering recruiting, promotion, and compensation practices, as well as specific employee benefits and policies and quantitative representation at the leadership level.

“Over the past several years, there’s been a real awakening to the inequities in our world, and the need to address those things,” said Parity.Org President Dina Schenk. “It’s gratifying to see that the companies on this year’s ParityLISTs are not letting up or losing focus. They are continuing to innovate and to invest in leveling the playing so that all employees have equal and equitable opportunities to be hired, to be recognized, and to thrive.”

The 2023 Best Companies for Women to Advance honorees had a number of policies and practices in common, such as:

  • Actively monitoring recruitment, promotion, and attrition rates by gender (91%)
  • Leveraging a formal pay equity plan to identify and correct pay gaps (86%)
  • Providing dedicated, convenient, and private lactation rooms for nursing mothers. (100%)
  • Offering flexible working arrangements (95%)
  • Offering equal family leave to both men and women (81%) –and encouraging men to take their full family leave (98%)
  • Regularly measuring and reporting on gender representation and equity to the Executive Team (86%)

The inaugural Best Companies for People of Color to Advance honorees also distinguished themselves on a number of dimensions, such as:

  • Implementing targeted strategies to recruit people of color into the organization (89%)
  • Proactively informing and encouraging employees of color to pursue available opportunities (83%)
  • Developing benefit packages that consider the unique needs of employees of color, not strictly the needs of the majority (e.g., white employees) (71%)
  • Prioritizing skills over formal educational credentials and years of experience whenever possible (89%)
  • Conducting anti-bias training for all employees (89%), plus more specialized training for managers (83%)
  • Establishing Employee Resource Groups (ESGs) for employees of color (89%) and leveraging feedback from those groups to directly inform policies and benefits (83%)

In addition, virtually every company on both ParityLISTs has a zero-tolerance policy for harassment, and a safe reporting system that ensures employees are not punished in any way for reporting incidents of discrimination and harassment.

“I am proud to work for a company that consistently ranks as one of the best in the nation for women and people of color in the workforce,” said Tanya Hart, executive vice president and chief human resources officer at First Horizon. “This recognition validates our efforts to elevate equity in every aspect of our organization. We continue to remain focused on creating opportunities for women and people of color to develop and advance by providing an inclusive and collaborative environment.”
