Please join me in supporting the Navy Seal Foundation, the amazing organization that supports our Navy SEALS, their families, and the surviving Gold Star Families of the fallen.
My brother, SOC (SEAL) Brad Cavner enlisted in the Navy in 2003 and graduated from SEAL Qualification Training in class 247 in July 2004. During his 11 years of service, he deployed five times and served as a member of the west-coast based training detachment. He returned from his 3rd deployment in Afghanistan on Memorial Day 2014. Always eager to be better at his job, he immediately began training to become a static line jump master. On Monday, June 23, 2014, our family and friends were devastated by the news that Brad suffered fatal injuries during a training jump.
Immediately after Brad's death, The Navy SEAL Foundation came to my family's side and has continued to suppport us through this difficult journey. I can never repay this organization for all they have done, but I would like to help ensure that they can continue to fulfill their mission. On being a member of the teams, Brad once said, "One guy can't do everything, but together we can crush anything." I am asking for your help, and hope that together we can crush this fundraiser!
