support Soldiers for the Truth

President of the board, Frederick Tanne

Did you know that...
Over a 2-year period, 80% of marines killed in Iraq could have lived had they had adequate upper-body protection?

To ensure that US troops are suitably equipped for the frontline, the late Col. David H. Hackworth and his wife, Eilhys England, set up Soldiers for the Truth, now known as Stand for the Troops, a not-for-profit Educational Foundation. The organisation's many campaigns have been centred on providing America's troops with the very best protective equipment and combat gear.

The main focus has been the "BASIC FIVE": body armor, combat boots, helmets, weapons and sidearms.

Investigative reporting also plays a large part in the organization's work, the SFTT home page provides the latest news on situations involving our troops.
In 2009, the law firm Kirkland and Ellis LLP filed the final motion with the Federal Court in Washington DC in the Freedom of Information Act on behalf of the SFTT's editor for forensic records held by the Department of Defense.

Support SFTT's Mission

ASPCA Frederick Tanne Member of the Board


The ASPCA headquarters are located in NYC where Frederick Tanne is a member of the board. The ASPCA's mission, as set out by Henry Bergh, the founder, is "to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States".

The ASPCA has the authority to investigate and make arrests for crimes against animals and work is carried out in three main areas: caring for parents and pets, providing positive outcomes for at-risk animals and helping victims of animal cruelty.

The many programs and facilities, such as adoption centers, behavior centers, animal hospitals, and the important anti-cruelty initiatives, make the work of the ASPCA invaluable.

The ASPCA website has many free resources and ways to become involved.
