A HEARTFELT DEDICATION TO SOWF DADS ON FATHER’S DAY:

Their children, Special Operations Warrior Foundation’s scholarship recipients, remember them as Dad.

A Message FROM NFL LINEMAN ALEJANDRO VILLANUEVA

Former Platoon Leader, 1st Ranger Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment

“It’s my privilege to support the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, a nonprofit organization that always puts families first. Should our brave Warriors not make it home, the steadfast assurance that their children and families will be supported is a peace of mind like no other.

Special Operations Warrior Foundation’s mission and Enduring Promise to our nation’s brave Warriors is everlasting. Every day, their team stands ready to serve as an extended family member to hundreds of families while Warriors continue to put their lives on the line for our nation’s freedom and security.

Special Operations Warrior Foundation helps children of fallen Warriors become future leaders. During my military career, I had the privilege to lead others in a shared mission. The coaches and counselors of SOWF are very special leaders unto themselves, never leaving the side of surviving children throughout their academic journeys and beyond.”
