American Security Council Foundation

Our mission is to support national security, economic strength, and the education of future generations to raise moral leaders who will protect our freedoms




Since 1958 the American Security Council Foundation (ASCF) vision has been to protect American freedoms and values by educating the public and elected officials on national security matters.
Today, through our podcasts, position papers, and educational programs we address national security, economic growth, and the education of the future generation to raise moral leaders who will continue to protect American freedoms and values.

ASCF is non-partisan, non-profit, 501 (c)(3) organization. We rely on fundraisers, sponsorships, grants, and donations to keep our programs running.


Please join us for a night of laughter and fun with Howie Carr. Dinner is included in the price of your ticket. You can purchase tickets here.

Also in attendance will be Sgt. John Melson, the host of our new podcast "Guts and Grit." John is a U.S. Army Ranger who has deployed 9 times and earned 5 Bronze Stars in defense of freedom.
