How We’ve Helped
Over the past decade, our 501(c)3 organization has supported Soldiers, families, and civilians within the U.S. Army Special Operations community. Our staff consists of volunteers, most of which are veterans and retirees from Special Operations units. We provide support through a variety of activities including financial assistance during family hardships, Gold Star family events, and scholarships for wounded Soldier’s family members. Since 2009, we have helped hundreds of Soldiers and their families.
When Bad Things happen to good people
Home repairs in desperate situations. When tornadoes struck the Fort Bragg area in 2011, our Association presented $500 checks to 93 USASOC Soldiers whose family homes were damaged or destroyed – to help defray insurance deductible expenses.
Secret Santa money ($1,000-$1,500) to junior Soldiers and their Families during the Christmas holidays.
Numerous emergencies where Soldiers and Families have had nowhere else to turn.
For our Fallen and their families
In 2010, the Association raised $200,000 to replace and construct a world-class Memorial Wall on Meadows Field at the USASOC Headquarters Building.
Our Association has provided funding for family members to travel to fallen Soldier’s memorial services or to offset costs for Soldiers traveling to see dying parents or next-of-kin.
USASOC SF&CSA Funded programs
Gold Star family attendance to the annual Army/Navy football game.
Cybercamp for the children of Special Operations Soldiers.
Since 2012, the Patriot Foundation has given us the ability to provide 350 USASOC wounded warrior children and spouse recipients educational scholarship awards totaling $900,000.
