This is one of the groups I proudly support each year financially.
History of Special Operations Warrior Foundation
Special Operations Warrior Foundation was founded in 1980 after the daring attempt to rescue 53 American hostages in Iran, which ended in the tragic loss of eight servicemen who left behind 17 children.
A battlefield promise to take care of those 17 children has become the noble mission of the Special Operations Warrior Foundation to educate over 1,200 children.
On the upside this led to the development of what we know as Delta Force.
Its mission statement reads: Caring for the Families of the Fallen & Severely Wounded
and that they do well.
How much of the monies collected goes to the families of the wounded and fallen?
There is little irony in the fact that the Iranians had no respect for the failed president, Jimmy Carter.
