Word of Honor Fund provides a continuum of support that facilitates milestone events for the surviving children of Navy SEALs and Special Operations personnel who die while assigned or attached to select Naval Special Operations Groups.
Who will keep his promise? We will.
Many of those who pay the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms, leave behind an unwritten, unfulfilled legacy in their children. This is where the Word of Honor Fund begins.
In recent years, two major wars have taken significant tolls on our nation and our families. The overwhelming loss of so many heroes has created a void in the lives of their surviving children. It’s impossible to gage the pain and confusion endured by the children who are left behind as they attempt to navigate life without their fathers. The brutal reality for these kids is that they will grow up without the guidance of a hero and mentor, a beloved dad and male father figure. The effect of such loss cannot be measured.
As the brethren of fallen heroes, it’s imperative that we step in to help these kids during the intervening years that lead to adulthood. It’s our goal, and our responsibility to identify the means to honor promises made to them by their fathers, and see those promises through fruition to the best of our abilities.
We will honor promises through the gracious support of our donors, the trust of the surviving families, and the mentorship provided by the members of our special operations community.
