As we gather at our tables on this uniquely American tradition, which began in 1619 and became an official U.S. holiday in 1789, we take note the spirit of Thanksgiving is gratefulness of coming together over the adversity of life as it was in 1619 and as it is today 400 years later. We are grateful for the grit, the trust, and achievements of the diversity of America to ensure our way of life.
Remarkable leadership through the challenges of 2020 has allowed for rapid advancements in the field of missile defense and has saved and secured lives around the world.
We are thankful for the existing and evolving missile defense systems and the soldiers, the sailors, the airmen, the marines, and the civilians that operate, develop, man, and equip them.
MDAA’s mission is to make the world safer by advocating for the development and deployment of missile defense systems to defend the United States, its armed forces and its allies against missile threats.
MDAA is the only organization in existence whose primary mission is to educate the American public about missile defense issues and to recruit, organize, and mobilize proponents to advocate for the critical need of missile defense. We are a non-partisan membership-based and membership-funded organization that does not advocate on behalf of any specific system, technology, architecture or entity.
