Caring for America’s Quiet Professionals
The liberties we enjoy as Americans don’t come without a cost. The Special Forces bear the burden of having the highest number of wounded personnel of any other U.S. Special Operations Forces (SOF) proponent. The Green Beret Foundation serves these quiet professionals who bravely serve the American people and its freedoms.
In an effort to fill the gaps in support left by the boundaries of other organizations, the GBF facilitates assistance to our wounded, ill and injured Special Forces soldiers and their families. They do do this by providing resources to ease the burdens of some of the financial hardships that arise in their time of need as well as improving the quality of life for the soldier and the family.
In the past, there have been many shortcomings in the care system for our wounded, ill, injured and the families greatly affected within the Special Forces community. The GBF intends to help ease the burdens due to these gaps and hopes to build the awareness necessary on some of the most common issues in order to bring about solutions within the care system.
The GBF needs your support so that they may provide the best care possible for those bravely defending our country and our freedoms. The foundation plans on initially operating in the Ft. Bragg area and intends on having a presence at every base in the U.S. that has a Special Forces Group. Please visit our donation page to find out how you can contribute to their great cause.
