Our Mission
Transparency and Education
All of our team members have experienced loss and sacrifice through our military service, which is why our primary mission is to tell the stories of those fighting on the ground as unbiased and transparently as possible. While we each have our own personal biases, we hold each other accountable to the facts of the stories and how they impact the individuals involved. For the last 13 years we have had the unique opportunity to show war in its most brutal and honest form, which at times can be difficult to watch, even for us. However, our hope is that unlike our generation and generations past, the next will be better informed as to what it means to send our sons and daughters into an armed conflict. By broadcasting brutal conflicts uncensored in near real-time, we weaken the impact of political propaganda through the mainstream media and entertainment industry, which we believe will result in better informed personal and political decision making in the future.
