BENEFITING: VETERANS UNITED FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Mar 10, 2013
Join our team, " TEAM VUF running with MDSU-1," and help raise money for the families of Mobile Diving & Salvage Unit One (MDSU-1)! Veterans United Foundation is committed to enhancing the lives of veterans and military families nationwide and is teaming up with the MDSU-1 Spouse Significant Others Group (SSOG). All funds raised will be used for Hawaii based MDSU-1 family support programs.
MDSU-1 is primarily comprised of Navy Divers and Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Techs. The command mission is to rapidly deploy combat-ready, expeditionary warfare capable, specialized dive teams to conduct harbor and waterway clearance, emergent underwater repairs, and salvage operations in all environments.
The MDSU-1 SSOG is completely family-run and strives to develop a strong family support network which is crucial to a community with such a demanding deployment tempo. Your support will expand family programs in the areas such as: transition assistance to families new to Hawaii; increased aid during family emergencies; enhanced family retreat opportunities; and activities to help children cope with a parent deployed.
Thank you in advance for your support to Navy EOD and Diver families in Hawaii!
