About Green Beret Foundation
Supporting American's Special Forces and their Families
The Green Beret Foundation serves the Army’s Special Forces, our nation’s most elite soldiers and their families. We believe Green Berets are our nation’s greatest assets. Every day, we honor our commitment to Green Berets past and present, as well as their families, by connecting them with the right resources to prosper and thrive. Because when these soldiers meet powerful opportunities, our nation’s most elite soldiers become our nation’s best leaders.
When one of our Green Berets is wounded or injured in the line of duty, we send them and their family a $2,500 check and essential gear for a temporary hospital stay that is packed in a Special Forces-grade, durable, and versatile GORUCK GR1 backpack. These packs are generously donated by GORUCK, a Special Forces Veteran owned business.
We ensure that key family members are at the soldier’s bedside. We provide financial support for family members’ travel not covered by the Army and support for other family needs such as child-care, pet kenneling, and fuel cards. We will also help ship privately owned vehicles to the military treatment facility if required.
Health and Wellness Support:
The long-term health of a Green Beret’s mind, body, spirit are of the utmost importance to the Foundation. We supplement the care that the Military Health System (MHS) and Veterans Health Administration (VA) provides to ensure total wellness for the Green Beret. Some examples of how we support our community:
- Funded Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) for TBI and PTSD
- Infrared Light Therapy
- Laser Regeneration Therapy
- Aphasia Therapy
- Access to substance abuse treatment
- Inpatient/Outpatient healthcare costs not covered by TRICARE or the Veterans Health Administration
At the Green Beret Foundation, we know that one of the most important ways we can honor and assist our warriors is by giving their families a welcoming and supportive community.
Gold Star and Surviving Families:
The Green Beret Foundation is dedicated to caring for our Gold Star and Surviving Families as they are revered members of our community. The final sacrifice of their Green Berets cause us to pause, reflect and give thanks for the freedoms we hold so dear. Our mission is to help the family navigate their difficult journey, give them the tools they need and empower them to take control of their future. In the immediate wake of the Green Beret’s death we offer financial assistance to help ease the burden of the expenses the family may incur during this time. Long term, we strive to maintain relationships with the family and communicate with the Special Forces Groups to identify any gaps we may be able to fill. We will always honor our fallen and support their families.
Team Room to Board Room:
We can provide a focused, relevant, collaborative, and secure environment for transitioning Green Berets. The Next Ridgeline program provides current and former transitioning Green Berets with the tools and resources that they need to be successful in their new careers, while the VA Benefits & Claims Program provides them with pre-transition briefings and preparation, presentation, and prosecution of an original or updated VA Disability Claim.
