Honoring Green Berets Past and Present
The Green Beret Foundation serves the nation’s most elite soldiers, the Army’s Special Forces. It was founded in 2010 to assist Green Berets and their families. Its founder is Aaron Anderson, a former wounded Green Beret who recognized gaps in immediate support and continuity of care for Special Forces.
The organization connects them with resources they need to thrive, from supporting their health and well-being to coming alongside them as they transition back into everyday life. Specifically, The Green Beret Foundation provides support in the following programs:
- Casualty support
- Health and wellness support
- Transition support
- Family support, including providing scholarships for the children, spouses and dependents of noncommissioned, warranted and commissioned officers
Since its inception, the foundation has provided direct assistance to 13,000 Green Berets, as well as their families. Of every dollar raised, the organization invests $0.87 back into the Green Beret community.
