Who We Are
A non-profit connecting people to the Special Operations community via events and engagements.
We created SOC-F in 2013 for one purpose: to make a positive and meaningful difference in the lives of SOF families who have given so much for our country and our freedom. We do this by raising money for one incredibly worthwhile purpose: to provide medical, financial, and other support to SOF members and their families in ways that are often not met through other sources–what we call the “gaps.” Hence our Mission Statement, respectfully adopted from President Abraham Lincoln’s second inaugural address in 1865:
With one notable exception, none of our board members has served in the U.S. armed forces; we are average Americans who share a deep respect and appreciation for the devotion and personal sacrifice of our SOF warriors and their families. The incredibly difficult and dangerous work that these warriors have been asked by our nation to perform–usually over multiple combat deployments–calls for a response, we believe, more tangible than just thanking them for their service.
