At this weekend’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, DC, the American Conservative Union (ACU) presented their prestigious Ronald Reagan Award to our great friend and ACLJ Senior Counsel David French.

This award is given to someone who is, as ACU Chairman Al Cardenas called it, “working in the trenches” of the conservative movement – fighting for the principles embodied by President Reagan.

We can’t think of anyone who better deserves this award. David has not only spent many years fighting for free speech, religious liberty and the rights of students in the courtroom, he has literally fought in the trenches.

David is a Captain in the United States Army Reserve. From October 2007 to September 2008, David served a tour of duty in Iraq as Squadron Judge Advocate for the 2d Squadron, 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment in Diyala Province and was awarded the Bronze Star for his service. He still serves as a judge advocate.

Since his days battling his liberal professors at Harvard Law School (where he graduated cum laud), David has dedicated his life’s work to defending constitutional liberty. He served as president of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), and currently serves as a Senior Counsel at the ACLJ.

David is an accomplished author and a regular guest on Jay Sekulow Live! and the Jordan Sekulow Show.

David has done so much thankless work for the conservative cause in defense of constitutional liberty and epitomizes the essence of the ACU Ronald Reagan Award.

On behalf of the entire ACLJ family, congratulations David.
