Here is the link to the Navy Seal Warrior Fund ~ They do a lot of good for the best warriors in the world and their dependents ...

The Navy SEAL Warrior Fund is a 501c3 (Federal Tax ID# 20-2827813) non-profit organization tasked with a mission to:
  • Support the widows and children of US Navy SEALs killed or injured in combat or training
  • Assist wounded SEALs where special needs must be met
  • Provide support to the active duty SEALs, who are away from home answering the call of duty, and their families back home

A veteran is someone who wrote a blank check Made payable to 'The United States of America ' for an amount of 'up to and including my life.'
That is Honor, and there are way too many people in This country who no longer understand it.

Tom...

Thanks for your help....

I have contributed to this fund for the past several years. As Tom said, they assist the families of Navy Seals killed or injured or Seals with medical needs.

This is my first Charitable Auction on FPN....so I'm not sure of all the rules......from what I've seen before people post replies with their bid. I think you need to know the current bid...so if a bid is presented to me by email I will indicate that in the post.

Thanks for all your interest. I will be happy to discuss the charity with you...just drop me an email at RCS.SPINE@gmail.com

I will start the bidding at $100, hoping of course no one else bids!

Awesome! Sadly, with the wife laid-off, we're counting pennies.
