WHAT OUR JOINT SPECIAL OPERATIONS FAMILIES SAY ABOUT US

There are no words to properly express how thankful I am. Thank you for caring about the survivors of the soldiers who gave their lives to afford us the liberties that we Americans enjoy on a daily basis. There are many gifts that can be lost or taken, but education is one gift that no one can ever take away because it is in our mind.

Daniele

I am very proud of my father and the other men in the unit who keep us safe. Thank you for making what he did for us — giving his life — so meaningful. Thank you for helping me with school. It is truly a blessing.

Heather

My time at Duke has been immensely rewarding and introduced me to options which would not have been possible without your support and for that I am incredibly grateful.

Shannon

Loved my time at Exeter! It's one of the best summers I've ever had, and I honestly didn't want to leave! I made great friendships and learned so much from both my peers and teachers. I feel that I gained a lot from their method of Harkness, which took some getting used to, but I found myself enjoying it. Exeter helped open up a different world for me.

Abby

The Fund was only doing what your father would have done." One of the children quickly came back with... "No Sir, our father could never afford to put three kids through college.

The Exeter summer program was a wonderful gift from the SOFund and I am forever grateful. A chance to meet new people, both from the SOF Families and from around the world. The culture appreciation that I gained and the shared love of learning that I found will help guide as I continue high school and college.
