David Fitzgerald

Grassroots Trainer

A veteran of the wars in Iraq and Syria, David Fitzgerald, followed a unique path to becoming a trainer. He served as a law enforcement park ranger and Infantryman in the North Carolina National Guard while studying National Defense Policy at East Carolina University. David’s discovery in college that people were oppressed by government policies abroad led him to work in pro-liberty movements in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.

These engagements included radio shows in Israel, direct involvement in the European migrant crisis of 2017, and partnerships with tribal councils in Asia. These experiences imparted first-hand knowledge of the serious repercussions of terrible government policy. As David returned to America he sought ways to stay engaged in the fight against bad policies at home. This led to his faithful encounter with the Stand Together Network. Specifically, Concerned Veterans for America (CVA).

Through lobbying, grassroots organizing, and public education campaigns; David learned how effective CVA was at reforming the Veteran’s Administration and reshaping how foreign policy was talked about. After a combat deployment to Syria, David returned to service as a grassroots trainer. Where he’s passionate about national defense and empowering citizens to make a difference.
