At SOWF, we stand by the side of surviving families of Special Operators, offering unwavering support from cradle to career. Our mission is to ensure that every child of fallen Special Operations Personnel receives the education they deserve.

Since November 2020, we have expanded our program eligibility to include the children of ALL Medal of Honor recipients. Moreover, in September 2022, we extended our support to the children of active-duty Special Operators who have lost their spouse. This ensures that no child is left behind, and that they can pursue their dreams with confidence.
