I have decided to participate in the inaugaral Boston Frogman Swim, an event which raises funds for the Navy SEAL Foundation.
Established to serve U.S. Navy SEALs, Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewmen, Naval Special Warfare (NSW) support personnel, and their families, the Navy SEAL Foundation provides a comprehensive set of programs specifically designed to reduce the stressors associated with the tremendous amount of uncertainty and pressure that comes with life in Naval Special Warfare. Since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, there has been an unprecedented demand for Special Operations Forces around the globe. SEALs spend up to 270 days away from home each year in the most unforgiving environments and training at an unrelenting pace in order to maintain their ability to execute our nation’s toughest military missions. Their commitment to our country and the mission is only possible because of the significant personal sacrifices made by their families.
PROGRAMS ARE UNIQUELY DESIGNED TO PRESERVE THE FORCE & THEIR FAMILIES
WARRIOR SUPPORT & FAMILY SERVICES
Ensuring the NSW community and their families have the support they need in times of achievement and adversity is of the utmost importance to the Foundation. Our warrior and family support programs include resiliency and morale-building events, pre- and post-deployment retreats, summer camps for children, command all-calls, graduations, family days, holiday celebrations and many more. The Foundation has also partnered with world-class academic institutes and other non-profits to assist NSW combat veterans and their families transition as they exit the military and begin a new chapter of their lives.
The Foundation empowers active-duty NSW personnel, their spouses, and children by awarding scholarships for higher education and providing tuition assistance for active duty personnel. We also support quality education options for dependent children in geographically separated duty locations where choices matter to the overall success of the student. Additionally, the Foundation provides funding for standardized college entrance exams for active duty NSW service members and their dependents.
Your contribution will help further the mission of the Navy Seal Foundation.
