Who We Are

A Few Good Men, Inc., a 501(c) (3) organization was founded in 1993 by a few committed men in Monroe, North Carolina. They saw a need to make a positive influence on the educational, political and socio-economic climate in Union County. You will see in our Bios that we come from varied backgrounds and experiences but we share the same vision for our community. We plan to stay Consistent and Persistent with the community activities that are listed below because they are our top priorities annually.


"Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or the darkness of destructive selfishness.  This is the judgment.  Life's most persistent and urgent question is, WHAT ARE YOU DOING FOR OTHERS?"

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
