Over the past couple of days, we have been sharing information regarding what is now considered as the darkest day in the history of the SEALs, and the Naval Special Warfare (NSW) Group: the tragic helicopter crash that claimed the lives of 30 Americans, 22 of whom were members of the NSW family, and 8 Afghans.
As we continue to share details from the ongoing investigation into the tragedy, as well as the personal stories of the valiant men who lost their lives on that fateful day, we pause for a moment to turn our attention to the loved ones that they left behind.
Losing a loved one, regardless of the reason, is never easy, and it is with this fact in mind that we reach out and express our condolences to the families of the Navy SEALs and the other U.S. service members, as well as Afghan soldiers, who died in Afghanistan on Saturday.
We have pledged to collect $5,000 for the Fallen Heroes through The Navy SEAL Foundation. $10 from each sold T-Shirt displayed on the left will go to The Navy SEAL Foundation to support the Naval Special Warfare community and their families.
With this T-Shirt, you will be able to proudly display your support of the Navy SEALs, who risked their lives for our country.
In this time of loss, we join the rest of America in sympathizing with those who lost husbands, sons, fathers, brothers, and friends. We have said time and again that just as the Navy SEALs and other U.S. service members live lives of service to the United States of America and its people, so do their families. With unconditional love, understanding, and spirit of sacrifice, they stand behind these courageous men and women in the service, knowing all too well the dangers that they face.
Those who also would like to show their support to the Navy SEALs and their families may donate to the Navy SEAL Foundation. In this time of great sadness, we express our utmost gratitude to the courage and the service of our troops and their families.
