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.

Stanford Medicine Children’s Health Receives Rare Disease Centers of Excellence Designation

PALO ALTO, Calif., May 11, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Stanford Medicine Children’s Health has been named one of the National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD) Rare Disease Centers of Excellence, which are dedicated to diagnosing, treating, and researching all rare diseases.

Stanford Children’s joins the first national network of 40 hospitals across the country that are caring for thousands of rare disease patients and are at the cutting edge of some of the biggest medical and scientific breakthroughs. Natalia Gomez-Ospina, MD, PhD, will serve as the Director for Stanford Children’s NORD Center of Excellence for Rare Disorders.

“No single organization can tackle caring for rare diseases alone,” says Dennis Lund, MD, Chief Medical Officer of Stanford Medicine Children’s Health. “It’s an honor for our teams at Stanford Children’s to be a part of a network to improve access to care for these families. We can help connect patients to specialists with the expertise that’s needed, regardless of what they’ve been diagnosed with or where they live, which is crucial to transforming their lives.”

A disease is considered rare in the United States if it affects fewer than 200,000 people nationwide. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), nearly 1 in 10 people, or about 30 million people in the U.S., have a rare disease. Two-thirds of them are children. The patients and their families face hurdles in finding a diagnosis and accessing quality clinical care because many of these complex conditions have no specific treatment.

“We have a culture at Stanford Children’s of pushing the envelope and looking at what can we do to take even better care of patients, so every child has the opportunity to thrive and live their fullest lives,” Dr. Lund says. “With millions of children and families facing the unknowns of their rare disease, we see our role in accelerating advancements in diagnosis and treatments for those who are navigating the challenges of their condition as incredibly important.”

Stanford Children’s was selected by NORD for this designation through a competitive application process, which looked at whether the medical center had experts across multiple specialties to meet the needs of rare disease patients, as well as its contributions to rare disease patient education, physician training, and research. For instance:

  • Stanford Children’s provides individualized care to every patient with a rare disease. For example, the Stanford Children’s medical genetics team works to identify the genetic cause of the disease, which may help identify new treatment options. And some patients with rare diseases may benefit from only-at-Stanford clinical trials offered through the Stanford Medicine Center for Definitive and Curative Medicine. The Center helps bring research from the lab bench to the patient’s bedside faster, and is currently offering clinical trials for rare diseases including IPEX syndrome and Fanconi anemia.
  • Traejen Kingston of Idaho was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune form of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), which required him to spend hours every week on a dialysis machine from ages 9 to 21. However, through an innovative procedure called DISOT, or dual immune/solid organ transplant, which was developed at Stanford, he is now completely off dialysis and doesn’t need to take immunosuppressive medication.
