“Freedom and security are precious gifts that we, as Americans, should never take for granted. We must do all we can to extend our hand in times of need to those who willingly sacrifice each day to provide that freedom and security. While we can never do enough to show gratitude to our nation’s defenders, we can always do a little more.”

– Gary Sinise

LESMA was founded out of necessity, to protect and insulate our heroes who stand the, “Thin Blue Line” between civility and chaos. For far too long the silent majority has stood by and watched as the vocal minority feeds hate into the war on Police in America. Now with the birth of yet another hate group, (BLM movement), which singles out the 1% of our population that defends the other 99%, the time to take a stand is here. Because of this very thing, LESMA was born.

Gang Intervention & Prevention programs in the Los Angeles metropolitan area

In 2009, I donated every last thing I owned, furniture, musical instruments, 100″ TVs, art, sporting equipment and more from a home and storage I lost in the recession to help fill a new gang rehabilitation center in Long Beach. It was the most fulfilling and freeing thing I have ever done. I hope they liked the Waterford Crystal!
