It is important to offer our active duty non-drug, non-surgical options for their painful conditions and Doctors of Chiropractic offer such care with attention to the optimum function and health of the whole person. The Patriot Project aims to make chiropractic care readily available for ALL active duty personnel, Military Veterans & their Families including all Gold Star Dependents. With adequate funding, The Patriot Project will include a USO-type chiropractic care tour, visiting military bases around the world including Afghanistan and Iraq including all active forward operating bases. The Patriot Project is determined to have chiropractic physicians commissioned in the military similarly to the commissioning of other physicians - MD/DOs.
