The SEAL Family Foundation is honored to be named the sole beneficiary of the James M. Sweeney Classic Charity Golf tournament on August 8th in Lemont, IL. This golf tournament included 500 golfers and raised $300,000 for our Navy SEAL Families!

The IUOE Local 150 is a labor union representing 23,000 working men and women in Illinois, Indiana and Iowa.  Thank you Mr. James Sweeney and the IUOE Local 150!

“Both as Americans, and as an industry, supporting the needs of our military families is deeply personal,” said IUOE Local 150 President James Sweeney.  “Veterans who are coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan are increasingly turning to the construction trades for civilian employment.  Their sacrifice and battle-tested skills warrant not just the dignity of a viable middle class civilian career pathway, but a steadfast commitment to the support services that their families have earned and deserve.”

In the photo are Mr. Sweeny and SEAL Family Foundation Board Member Craig Cassell during the check presentation.  Thank you Mr. James Sweeney and the IUOE Local 150!
