From Our Founder

Dear Community and Friends,

On behalf of the Word of Honor Fund team, I would like to extend our sincerest gratitude for your enduring commitment to supporting the Gold Star and Surviving Children of Naval Special Operations. Our grass-roots organization gathered to address a fundamental support gap within our community. Since its inception in 2012, Word of Honor Fund has strived to provide the highest level of support directly to the children of our fallen teammates. Children’s mentors provide critical and often missing pieces of their father’s legacy. It is our mission to ensure their linkages and bonds remain strong and intact. Each Stone event we create lays the foundation for their development and reinforces the integrity of our solemn commitment to each other. Our hope is this newsletter provides you a glimpse into our most recent activities. We could not have achieved our mission without your support.

Thank you.

Louis W. Shepard

President, Founder
