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 Independent Voting Board Members
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.
Four of our five Independent Voting Board Members are retired military officers – three 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.
Board service, in some instances amounts to 15 – 20 hours a week, depending upon ongoing efforts. However, other than reimbursement for reasonable travel to attend Board meetings, which is substantiated by receipt and Board approval, no Board Member is compensated for service on the Board.
