Justice For All - A chat with Eddie and Andrea Gallagher of the Pipe Hitter Foundation at SHOT Show 2022

Eddie and his wife Andrea have found a new opportunity to help others

Super happy to see fellow Veteran and Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher at SHOT Show 2022.  Eddie and his wife Andrea have found a new opportunity to help others through their shared struggle.

Eddie and his family are uniquely aware of the challenges facing wrongly accused service members, first responders and their families who are entrapped in legal proceedings.

They chose the name Pipe Hitter Foundation to pay respect to the term used to describe someone you want with you during tough situations, someone who has your back and is willing to sacrifice and work hard to get the job done-The Pipe Hitters.

The men and women who’ve dedicated their lives to protecting us should know we have their back. It is vital we highlight their stories and support them in their fight for justice. That’s why the Pipe Hitter Foundation was founded -- and for us, the fight has just begun.

For nearly twenty years, Eddie Gallagher served as a Navy SEAL. Eight overseas combat deployments, two Bronze Stars and one Navy Achievement Medal, both with “V” for Valor. He was a model war fighter, ready to retire Then, on September 11, 2018 he was arrested and wrongfully charged with war crimes. Nearly eight months of pre-trial confinement followed. Only after a national outcry, a grassroots campaign, and an intense legal battle was Eddie found not guilty of the most serious charges. He was finally free – proven innocent – but came dangerously close to being crushed by a military justice system corrupted by political correctness.
