The Reagan National Defense Forum (RNDF) brings together leaders and key stakeholders in the defense community – including, members of Congress, civilian officials and military leaders from the Defense Department and industry – to address the health of our national defense and stimulate a discussion that promotes policies that strengthen the US military in the future. In an era of fiscal austerity where the threats to our national security are increasing in number and complexity, the RNDF will allow senior leaders from the defense community to come together with viewpoints on how best to deal with it. Though President Reagan left office many years ago, the United States military continues to benefit from his commitment and vision for a strong military. Recognizing that today’s decisions will affect the military’s capabilities for years to come, RNDF charges leaders from current and past Administrations and Congress to look beyond the immediate issues facing the military and explore how we can build peace through strength for American Security.

Of the tour, Governor Huckabee said, “Three remarkable leaders,
Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, Pope John Paul II were the human
instruments God used to change the course of all world history. None
of them were qualified according to the press and political pundits or
professional critics but rooted in their unshakable beliefs, they rose to
become prophetic voices for freedom and opportunity.”
Governor Huckabee will discuss how the historical, social and spiritual
forces shaped President Reagan, Prime Minister Thatcher and Pope John
Paul II’s leadership to become the world influencers as they are recorded
in history. In addition, Governor Huckabee will speak about how the fall
of communism, the restoration of economic freedom and the spiritual
renewal of cultures took place during the course of these leaders’ lives.
Governor Huckabee was the 44th Governor of Arkansas, becoming one
of the longest serving Governors in his state’s history. He is also a former
Republican presidential candidate and a Southern Baptist pastor. He is
currently the host of the number one rated weekend show “Huckabee”
on Fox News Channel. He is a New York Times bestselling author of 11
books, and his 12th is set for release in January of 2015.
