The Navy SEAL Foundation is a 501(c)(3), tax exempt, national, non-profit benevolent organization headquartered in Virginia Beach, VA. Established in 2000 to serve U.S. Navy SEALs, Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewmen, Naval Special Warfare support personnel and their families, the Navy SEAL Foundation’s programs are focused on the preservation of the Naval Special Warfare force and their families.
Since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, there has been an unprecedented demand for our Special Operations Forces. Never before has so much been asked of so few, from so many, for so long.

We formed TEAM GRATITUDE 2019 to swim the Tampa Bay Frogman swim, a major fundraising event benefiting the Navy SEAL Foundation. TEAM GRATITUDE 2019 is proud to dedicate this year's swim to the warriors who made the ultimate sacrifice in early March 2002 during Operation Anaconda and the Battle of Takur Ghar. It is also known as the Battle of Roberts Ridge, named after the first casualty of the battle, Navy SEAL PO1 Neil C. Roberts.
We owe them a debt of gratitude and is best expressed by former Sec. of Defense Robert Gates:
"Your countrymen owe you their freedom and their security. They sleep safely at night and pursue their dreams during the day because you stand watch and protect them..... You are the best America has to offer. My admiration and affection for you is without limit, and I will think about you and your families and pray for you every day for the rest of my life. God bless you."
DONATE in the name of someone or yourself and make a REAL DIFFERENCE!
