Who was Danny Dietz and what was Operation Red Wings? 

During the War in Afghanistan in the Pech District of Afghanistan's Kunar Province, a team of four Navy SEALs, tasked for surveillance and reconnaissance of a group of structures known to be used by the local anti-coalition militia, fell into an ambush just hours after inserting into the area by fastrope from an MH-47 helicopter. Three of the four SEALs were killed (Michael P. Murphy 29, Matthew Axelson 29 and  Danny Dietz 25 - Marcus Luttrell was the "Lone Survivor") and then a quick reaction force helicopter sent in for their aid was shot down with a rocket-propelled grenade fired from an RPG-7, killing all eight U.S. Navy SEALs and all eight U.S. Army Special Operations aviators on board.


What is the Navy Seal Foundation and what do they do?

Built on an unparalleled legacy and established in 2000, the Navy SEAL Foundation is a 501(c)(3), tax-exempt, national, non-profit benevolent organization headquartered in Virginia Beach, VA. The Foundation is a resolute cornerstone for the Naval Special Warfare community and their families in times of adversity and triumph. Each of our specialized programs maps directly back to the U.S. Special Operations Command directive and the Naval Special Warfare’s Preservation of the Force and Family Program, a program designed to address the “fraying” of the force caused by the stress of more than 15 years of sustained combat. Our programs are designed to improve health and welfare, build and enhance resiliency, empower and educate their families, and provide critical support during times of illness, injury, and loss.
