A Day Inside Special Operations
This past April, SOWF, along with 15 donors, gathered for ‘A Day Inside Special Operations’ at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. This unique experiential opportunity provided participants with a glimpse into both the training regiments and the breadth of sacrifices made by Quiet Professionals and our Special Operations community as a whole.

SOWF Also Salutes Spouses
In recognition of the faithful and loving support of spouses of Special Operations Personnel, SOWF has expanded eligibility for educational programs and services to include children of active SOF Personnel who lose their spouse (non-military or dual military), dating back to September 1, 2018. Their children will now receive the same “cradle-to-career” (preschool – college) benefits as all other children in SOWF’s educational programs.
