John McCravy III listened to Van Hipp give a speech on his new book “The New Terrorism” last week in Greenville. “This new book brings to light a lot of issues that Americans need to be considering”, McCravy said,” and I would strongly encourage anyone who is interested in our safety to read it.”
Van Hipp is Chairman of American Defense International, Inc. (ADI), a Washington, DC based consulting firm specializing in government affairs, business development and public relations.
From 1986 to 1989, Van Hipp served as the Chairman of the SC Republican Party. In 1988, Hipp served as a member of the Presidential Electoral College, and as a speaker at the Republican National Convention, he introduced former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich. In 1990, Van Hipp was sworn in as Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army (Reserve Forces Mobilization). In this capacity, he served as the Army Secretariat’s “point man” for the successful mobilization, and then demobilization, of the Army’s reserve forces for Operations Desert Shield/Storm.
