To raise money, the proceeds of which will go to the Navy SEAL Foundation whose mission is to provide immediate and ongoing support and assistance to the Naval Special Warfare community and their families. Their mission was not created by war, but it has been made more important and difficult as a result of it. Established to serve U.S. Navy SEALs, Special Warfare Combatant-Craft Crewman, Naval Special Warfare (NSW) support personnel and their families; the Navy SEAL Foundation offers critical support to Navy Special Warfare commands, active duty personnel, their families and veterans of NSW. As the duration and frequency of training and training and operational deployments continue and the stress on the families and operators grow, this important community requires support today more than ever.
