Editorial Policy

1. Purpose and Values

Our website is dedicated to providing high-quality, human-written, accurate, and engaging content to our readers. We value integrity, transparency, and respect in all of our content.

We celebrate American culture, history, and current events through compelling articles that educate, inform, and entertain our readers. We love our freedoms, especially freedom of the press. Our team’s daily goal is to produce content in the following areas.

  • American History: What you learned in school just covered the surface of our nation’s past. We go deeper and bring you factual stories from colonial times through yesterday.
  • Military: Our military and service members are the defenders of freedom, and their stories must be told. We cover all branches, including the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, and Space Force.
  • Quizzes: We love creating challenging ways to test your knowledge of America. If you love mental exercise, we invite you to attend the challenge and see how you score.
  • Current Events: Every day, new events shape our nation. We find the latest events that our audience wants to know about from sources such as X (formally Twitter), YouTube, Newsrooms, Reddit, etc., and try to make sense of them all for you, including proposed legislation from our lawmakers, threats to our freedoms, and anything else that concerns the great people of the United States of America.
