I involved in this because this type of work that has always been my calling. I joined the SEAL teams to become a warrior and go do good and I see this as a continuation of that vision. On the base level I have always hated bullies, and in my mind kidnappers and other such types are the epitome of that. This foundation will allow the hostage recovery team to continually take the fight to these evil people on a physical level when the local police or military cannot or will not intervene. By doing so it will be helping innocent people who are experiencing a life crisis and have no other options. To me there is no higher calling.
This is a 501 (c) (3) tax deductible foundation, and donations that come in will be used exclusively to fund personnel recovery projects globally. More specifically, the donated money will go directly towards supporting training for the operators, purchasing required equipment, and to pay for the costs of operations.
The foundation is captained by a Delta Force 1st Sergeant who has successfully conducted multiple dozens of such recoveries, both privately and for the government. The operational teams are comprised of operators from the U.S. Navy SEAL teams and US Army Delta Force who were formerly assigned to Joint Special Operations Command. The missions are almost always high risk and low profile and typically conducted by 2-6 individuals, that being the case the missions are not cheap. When this project comes online and is fully operational the operational limitations will be limited by nothing more than funding.
Several other foundations have been founded on this premise. In fact, the founder of another non profit brought up the idea to the founder of this group because his non profit is being totally overwhelmed.
If you or anyone you know any may be interested in donating tax deductible money for a good cause I feel like nothing out there is more honorable than this one.
Anyway, please help us out anyway you guys can!
