Land of the Free Foundation

Our Mission

Founded in 2007 by Edward P. Roski, Jr. and his Majestic Realty Co. and military service colleagues, Kent Valley and John Semcken, The Land of the Free Foundation is committed to celebrating and supporting the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces – past, present and future.Land of The Free

As veterans of the Navy and Marine Corps, we have been fortunate in our businesses and we are also fortunate to be able to share resources with our fellow service men and women through this Foundation.  In many cases, simple appreciation is all our service personnel need or want. In other cases the needs of the troops and their families far exceed what they or our government can afford and the Land of the Free Foundation is committed to help bridge the gap.

All money raised by The Land of the Free Foundation goes directly to programs that support our country’s armed service personnel and their families.  Our goal is to help those brave men and women and help ensure that the commitment and dedication of our nation’s heroes will never be taken for granted, and that all American’s recognize that, because of the sacrifices that our armed service personnel have made, we will always live in the “Land of the Free.”
