What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our nation’s warriors are: wrongfully accused & convicted of “war crimes,” unable to afford effective legal defense, and are facing reintegration challenges. UAP generates public awareness, funds legal representation, and provides reintegration support for our nation's warriors to preserve our rights, defend our defenders, and enhance our communities. Our Government exists to protect our unalienable Rights of "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness" as highlighted in our Declaration of Independence and detailed in our Constitution and Bill of Rights. If an individual’s Rights are unlawfully taken away, it destroys the foundation upon which our Nation is built. In America, even when someone is perceived to be guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, or may even admit to conducting unseemly and criminal acts, we still provide them their Right to due process. By preserving of one citizen’s Rights we protect the Rights of all.

WARRIOR FUND

DEFENDING OUR DEFENDERS -- UAP’s WARRIOR FUND provides the finances necessary to support our Nation’s Warriors who have been wrongfully accused or convicted of “war crimes” or who have faced Courts Martial which have been improperly impacted by undue command influence. -- UAP’s WARRIOR FUND primarily covers the overwhelming legal fees and expenses associated with providing the best possible defense against unjust allegations or to appeal inappropriate sentences. -- Without UAP’s support, an unjustly accused proud Warrior is forced to beg and borrow for money from friends and family, take out a mortgage on his family home, sell his family car, and acquire massive debt which he cannot possibly repay on a military salary, without a salary while incarcerated, or while attempting to find work after incarceration if he is branded with a wrongful felony conviction and other than honorable discharge. -- UAP’s WARRIOR FUND also provides modest stipends to our Nation’s Warriors while they are incarcerated to offset expenses their family may incur while traveling for visitation and to provide some relief for our Warriors in the form of magazine subscriptions and small prison commissary purchases. -- Once our Warriors are released, UAP’s WARRIOR FUND assists with the transition from unlawful incarceration to productive and healthy participation in our society. Benefits range from funding medical procedures and counseling (due to the loss of VA benefits) to continued legal support and employment assistance. -- Each American Citizen has inalienable Constitutional Rights. UAP’s WARRIOR FUND ensures those who swore an oath to support and defend our Constitutional Rights have theirs protected as well.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

UAP generates public awareness, funds legal representation, and provides reintegration support for our nation's warriors to preserve our rights, defend our defenders, and enhance our communities. UAP positively advocate on behalf of our Nation's Warriors to enhance public perceptions, awareness, and support for our Nation’s Warriors and their families and our Constitutional Rights. UAP funds legal defense teams to preserve our Nation's Warriors' rights and to defend against wrongful accusations & convictions of "war crimes" or cases of demonstrated Unlawful Command Influence (UCI). UAP provides support for transitioning warriors to assist with reintegration into our civilian society.

Citizens voluntarily serve in our Armed Forces to enable our government to preserve our Rights. They solemnly swear to “…support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic…” These Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen consistently risk life and limb to bravely go in harm's way on our behalf. As such, our Defenders deserve to have their Rights protected and preserved at least as diligently as they protect ours. Unfortunately, while performing honorably, as trained, against our Nation’s enemies, in some of the most volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous environments in the world, our own government wrongfully accuses and convicts some of our Nation's Warriors of "War Crimes."

Although Service Members are offered military defense counsel at no cost to them, experience has shown, it is imperative they retain experienced civilian legal counsel to preserve their Rights and present the truth with the most effective and compelling legal defense. To retain an effective civilian defense team to provide representation against our Government and to address unjust accusation of “war crimes” costs hundreds of thousands of dollars. Addressing clemency, appeals, Habeas Corpus, pardons, etc. … can cost hundreds of thousands more.

Those who have fought for our Rights should not have to fight alone for their own.

Individual reintegration back into our civilian society can often be challenging for those who have known the camaraderie, ‘esprit de corps,’ and teamwork associated with serving as part of a close-knit combat fighting unit which has endured the rigors of war. Simply maintaining emotional stability and a healthy relationship with one’s own family, spouse and children can become overwhelming, not to mention the necessity to gain financially stable and sustainable, if not meaningful, employment to make ends meet.

These highly capable and diligent Warriors who volunteered to go in harm’s way on our behalf are ready willing, and able to continue being highly productive citizens, if given a chance and provided a stable foundation from which to grow. UAP aims to give them this chance.

UAP supports the execution of three main elements of our mission through generous individual contributions to our “Warrior Fund.” These contributions are generated primarily through our relationships with professional fundraising partners and are used as follows:

1. Implementation of insightful communication: UAP leverages all means of communication to raise public awareness - verbal, written, and visual. UAP supports public speaking engagements, presentations, and panel discussions; interacts with Senators, Congressmen, and their staff on Capitol Hill; interviews with TV, cable, radio, and print news media; generates digital and social media via www.uap.org, Facebook, twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, etc.…; crafts letters and press releases; and designs visual presentations and information graphics.

2. Sponsorship of highly dedicated teams: UAP pays for fees and associated expenses for our Nation's Warriors to have the best, highly dedicated teams of attorneys, investigators, experts, graphic artists, and consultants:
2.1. TO PRESERVE RIGHTS: UAP’s funded teams ensures our Nation’s Warriors Rights are preserved and any unlawful command influence (UCI) is addressed when in contact with military justice authorities. This occurs pursuant to, and/or during, any military tribunal; violations of any military member’s right to a fair and honest investigation, trial and/or administrative separation; and subsequent efforts to update military records.
2.2. TO DEFEND AGAINST WRONGFUL ACCUSATIONS & CONVICTIONS: UAP ensures our Nation’s Warriors receive the best legal representation during investigations, pretrial hearings, courts-martial, separation boards, clemency boards, appeals, habeas corpus, executive commutation, clemency, and Presidential Pardons.

3. Financing individual’s needs: UAP provides functional support for transitioning warriors to assist with reintegration into our civilian society. Since each individual’s situation is unique, those Warriors who have been unjustly accused or convicted of committing crimes in combat, i.e., “war crimes,” can request for support to assist with, but are not limited to, the following: Counseling, mentorship, and networking; training and educating; health care; legal support; upgrades of military records; access to veterans’ benefits; and, if unjustly imprisoned, visitation from loved ones and stipends to help with family and individual needs, e.g., books, stamps, magazines, etc.…

UAP Receives Contributions from Across our Nation to Promote, Defend, and Support our Nation's Warriors. UAP is a completely citizen-funded, veteran-run, non-profit 501(c)3 organization. UAP achieves its ability to promote, defend, and support, our Nation's Warriors through the generous donations from patriotic Americans across our Country who represent the entire social, economic, ethnic, religious, gender, orientation, and political spectrum which our Nation's Warriors represent and which makes our Nation great.

UAP consists of hundreds of thousands of highly patriotic, dedicated, and concerned American citizens from across our great country. A few are employed full-time by UAP, several receive compensation for work done on behalf of our Warriors, many volunteer time and effort furthering our mission, and most simply provide financial contributions, large and small, for UAP to generate public awareness, fund legal representation, and provide functional support for our Nation's Warriors.

Our UAP team represents the entire social, economic, ethnic, racial, religious, gender, sexual orientation, and political spectrum which makes our Nation great and on behalf of whom our Nation's Warriors willingly and courageously go in harm's way to defend. We, as Patriotic Americans, are United in our belief that all people are created equal and are extremely grateful for those who voluntarily support and defend our Constitution and our life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.

UAP's Board consists of five Members who are extremely experienced, highly educated, and intimately engaged. They have extensive backgrounds representing business management, executive placement, Information Technology, entrepreneurship, consulting, law, and the Armed Forces. UAP's CEO serves as the Board's Chairman. Three of our five Board Members are retired military officers – Two U.S. Marines and One U.S. Army. They are combat veterans of the Gulf War, Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Balkans, and have had assignments ranging from Iceland to Germany, Africa to South America, Guantanamo Bay to Korea, and Panama to the Pentagon. One of our five Board Members is an attorney with decades of criminal and military legal experience. He has been featured on national media for efforts on behalf of his clients. He provides an invaluable amount of knowledge, insight, and experience, with regard to addressing complex military justice issues – a key component of UAP’s mission.

In November 2005, retired Marine Corps Major Bill Donahue saw six Marines accused of killing Iraqi civilians being treated like convicted felons before they were even tried. The images of them in hand and leg irons, prior to any finding of guilt, saddened and offended the Major, who had seen combat, and was awarded the Purple Heart, more than once during his service in Vietnam.

THE ANSWER: United American Patriots (UAP, Inc.), a Northern Virginia based non-profit organization designated under IRS regulation 501(c)(3), whose “Warrior Fund” mission is to provide resources to service members accused of crime in combat: the idea being our volunteers who serve in harm’s way to protect our United States Constitution and American way of life, deserve the most pristine of trials – especially every constitutional right they have served to protect.

Since 2005, UAP has supported dozens of our Nation’s Warriors who have served in some of the most intense combat from Afghanistan to Iraq and challenged their wrongful accusations or convictions of “War Crimes.” Most significantly, with UAP’s support, our Warriors have had:
• Charges Dismissed
• Sentences Reduced
• Convictions Overturned
• Discharges Upgraded
• Convictions Appealed
• Presidential Pardons Coordinated
• Legal Fees & Expenses Covered
• Transition Issues Addressed

Almost 14 years later, UAP’s Board of Directors continue to screen service member applications for support to ensure an applicant’s case meets the “Warrior Fund” criteria. Upon acceptance of a case (many are rejected), UAP provides financial support for the legal fees and expenses, a small stipend for the clients to use while they are incarcerated, and funds to help off-set the client’s family travel to see them. In return, the client’s attorney must submit a monthly report keeping UAP’s Board updated. The attorneys who represent UAP clients voluntarily discount their standard rates, and often “write-off” legal services as pro bono, which are also in-kind contributions to UAP’s mission. These attorneys are ordinarily former military officers and private practitioners who bring perspective, experience, and capability to rigorously defend UAP’s clients.

United American Patriot’s 5-year plan includes expanding the Warrior Fund mission to take on military cases where unlawful command influence infringes on an accused’s constitutional rights and seeking Uniform Code of Military Justice reform to create a presumption that combat shots are presumed “good shots.” UAP generates positive public awareness and support for our Nation’s Warriors, their Constitutional Rights, and their Families, via public speaking engagements, presentations, and panel discussions; interactions with Senators, Congressmen, and their staff on Capitol Hill; messaging via social media; and crafting & distributing letters, press releases, and information graphics.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
