Houston Virtual Event Stream

Thank you for joining us

We are most grateful for your investment in the welfare of our nation’s most elite warriors and their families. They give back each and every day by putting their lives on the line to protect the freedoms we’ve come to expect. Since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, there has been an unprecedented demand for our Special Operations Forces. Never before has so much been asked of so few, from so many, for so long. Established in 2000 to serve U.S. Navy SEALs, Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewmen, Naval Special Warfare support personnel and their families, the Navy SEAL Foundation’s programs are focused on the preservation of the Naval Special Warfare force and their families. We provide a comprehensive set of programs specifically designed to improve health and welfare, build and enhance resiliency, empower and educate families and provide critical support during times of illness, injury, loss and transition.

Thank you again for your support of the Navy SEAL Foundation. We hope you enjoy this evening’s program.
