United States Military Spouse - greater love

Greater LOVE hath no man than this,
that a man lay down his life for his friends.
John 15:13

 I'm a photographer not a writer so bare with me for a bit...

Any lose is devastating when it's the one you love. This past weekend while I was lost in my little world dealing with the Super slow Typhoon Mufia. The United States was dealing with a lose of it's own. A Chinock helicopter crashed in Afghanistan taking the precious lives of 30 U.S Special Operation troops - some of them being Navy Seal, Air Force, Army  and Afghan soldiers.

Because of this devastation I want to introduce to you to a couple of programs who are near and dear to my heart.

The Special Operations Warrior Foundation provides full scholarship grants and educational and family counseling to the surviving children of special operations personnel who die in operational or training missions and immediate financial assistance to severely wounded special operations personnel and their families.



Our Mission
That Others May Live is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization established in 2002. Our foundation provides post-secondary education assistance to children whose USAF parents or guardians were lost in a personnel recovery mission, training, or other personnel recovery collateral mission.

Our Programs:

Beneficiary Assistance Program

Our goal is to provide the children of fallen USAF Rescue Heroes with assistance in one of three ways… in post-secondary educational assistance, business start up assistance and mentoring or first time home purchase assistance.

Warfighter Liaison Program
Provide contact to at home and deployed USAF rescue personnel with deployed unit care packages and morale booster and appreciation events.

Community Ambassador Program
Assist with rescue personnel appreciation events, deployed member outreach, community awareness and fundraising.
