“What an exemplary organization you are — devoting yourselves to the pursuit of peace and national security. I can think of no loftier purpose or goal.”
— 1995 letter from President Ronald Reagan to the Center for Security Policy
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction,” President Ronald Reagan warned. “We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”
That’s why 30 of President Reagan’s national security practitioners founded the Center for Security Policy in 1988: To perpetuate our 40th president’s transformative philosophy of “Peace through strength.” To keep America strong for future generations.
Led by Frank Gaffney, a former Reagan Pentagon official and aide to Senator Scoop Jackson, the Reagan national security veterans turned the Center into a unique, non-partisan, educational public policy organization with a single overarching mission: To secure freedom for American citizens of today and tomorrow.
