2016 Wreaths Across America Gold Star Event

This weekend, the SEAL Family Foundation participated in the annual Wreaths Across America event at Arlington National Cemetery.  We hosted 21 Gold Star Families over the weekend to come together during the holidays, remember and honor those who they’ve lost. This weekend allows this special group time to enjoy each other’s company and strengthen the bonds they cherish. 

Despite the low temperatures and freezing rain, our group participated in the laying wreaths on the graves of the fallen SEALs. Over 245,000 wreaths were laid this year. We are very appreciative of the hard work Wreaths Across America and our friends at Team Bear do throughout the year to make this event possible.

Why Your Next Hire Should Be an Ex Special-Forces Operator. That’s an order!

This week I had the unique privilege to participate once again with Phil Dana and The Honor Foundation ( https://www.thehonorfoundation.org/, ) with the outstanding work that they do: helping train some of our most elite special forces operators (SEALs, Recon Marines, Green Berets, etc.) how to get a job when they move into the “civilian world.” Each of these operators are transitioning out of the military, and very few of them had ever had to actually look for a non-military job before. Unfortunately, despite their capabilities, all of the training in the world won’t help them get a job one bit if these amazing heroes can’t get their foot in the door. [Full Article Here]

75th Anniversary of the Attack on Pearl Harbor

On December 7, 1941 the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor killing more than 2,300 Americans. President Franklin Roosevelt called December 7, 1941, “a date which will live in infamy.”

May we never forget those who selflessly gave their lives to protect this great land. And lets continue to honor those brave men and women who made the decision to continue to serve this great nation.
