Join the Council

We serve our Nation, not a party. We believe the consequences of four more years of Donald Trump will take generations to undo. And we have come together because our Nation’s future security demands informed, cogent leadership - traits sadly lacking in the Commander in Chief.

Join Us Today.

Are you, or an immediate family member a Military or National Security veteran?

University Ambassador

CPT. Adam Gard

USA (ret)

Adam Gard is currently a Full-Time MBA student (Smith ’21), following the Marketing path. Originally from the Baltimore area, he acquired his Undergraduate Degree from Stevenson University with a B.S. in Public History (’13). During Undergrad he enlisted in the National Guard as a MP (Military Police), but quickly changed his mind and entered the Army ROTC program at Johns Hopkins where he earned his commission (’14). 


For his initial duty assignment, Adam became an Active Duty Transportation Officer in the 52nd EOD Brigade in Ft. Campbell, KY (’14). At this assignment he served concurrent roles as the HHD XO, an a-S3 and Strategic Mobility Officer. His inter-post transfer led him to 3rd Brigade 101st (Rakkasan), where he was the Maintenance Officer and Platoon Leader for an Infantry Battalion (LEADER, 1-187). Following that, he became the Current Ops, Plans and S3 for the Brigade Logistics Battalion (ASSURGAM, 626BSB) for approximately 13 months. It was during this duty assignment that Adam decided to leave the Army and pursue a continued education. 


Upon acceptance into MIT, Adam said goodbye to active duty (’18). He acquired his first master’s degree in Supply Chain Management at MIT and, fearing the thought of putting on “big boy pants” again, embarked on a quest to obtain an MBA. He is now scheduled to graduate (’21) but will thankfully still have some leftover GI Bill - so he may not be through with school yet!
