Insight Sourcing Group is proud to sponsor the Witness to War Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) dedicated to preserving the stories of individual combat veterans. The Foundation focuses on the ‘foxhole’ or ‘windshield’ view of combat as seen by the soldiers, sailors, and airmen who experienced it. It is about the fear, the emotions, the training, and the previously untapped wells of personal courage that enabled ordinary individuals to survive, and in some cases thrive, under extraordinary pressures and almost unimaginable danger.

3,000th Veteran Interview

Witness to War recently hit a huge milestone: after many years of effort, it recorded it’s 3,000th veteran interview. The interview was with Tony Kimbrough, CEO of the Veterans Empowerment Organization (VEO) who spent eight years as a military intelligence officer and served in Afghanistan with the U.S. Army’s 82nd Airborne Division. Watch the full interview with Tony below.
