“I’ve learned that a lot of people can talk about the big picture. But when Randy worked for me, we were able to show what policy means to a community or to a family. He founded First Story Strategies with that focus in mind.”

“It’s important for us to highlight the personal side of what happens in communities across the country that military installations call home. First Story knows how to bring those stories to life and showcase the men, women, families, local leaders and others who are committed to our national security.”
