ILW Defenders' Circle 

ILW publicationsOur Important Mission: Keeping America's Army Strong

Because of generous donations, the educational arm of AUSA - the Institute of Land Warfare (ILW) a 501 (c)(3) educational association - has been able to continue to do what it has done for over 18 years - be a voice for America's Army.

ILW's Torchbearer Campaign and issues papers are distributed to Congress, senior government executives, leaders of industry, members of the press, academicians, professionals, community leaders and the general public.

These writings cover such issues as:

  • Providing for the well-being of our Soldiers and their families
  • Insuring the proper level of resources for readiness
  • National Security
  • Soldier compensation
  • Having an adequately funded Army   

Support our Soldiers - How can you help?

Every day you depend upon America's Soldiers to defend your freedom and keep your homeland safe. Now you or your company has the opportunity to give something back to these brave men and women and their families.

ILW is a non-profit educational association and relies partly on contributions from our members.

Now more than ever, with sequestration in force, ILW has to keep fighting to ensure America has the strongest Army possible.

Please accept our invitation to join the ILW Defenders Circle. There are five levels of donations for you to choose from. Each comes with its own "rewards" program. Remember, your donations are tax deductible:

Defender ($25-$49); Leader ($50-$99); Guardian ($100-$499); Patron ($500-$999); Benefactor ($1,000)
