TEAM Special Ops Survivors

"We believe that those that who have paid the ultimate sacrifice, leave behind far greater than they have lost, a family.  Behind every strong family unit, is a spouse."

   We at Cajun Ammo would like to introduce Special Ops Survivors (501c(3)), the only charity that supports the Surviving Spouses of fallen Special Operations Personnel.  The Special Ops Survivors story began in 2002 when one person was inspired to help a Special Ops family in need. In early 2002, word came that a Navy SEAL, Neil Roberts, had died in combat in the mountains of Afghanistan. A fellow Navy SEAL teammate felt compelled to do something to take care of the family Neil had left behind. One thing led to another and the organization that eventually became Special Ops Survivors was born. Now after over a decade of service to the Special Operations community, Special Ops Survivors has touched the lives of over 200 surviving spouses and their families.

Honor, Embrace, Empower and Assist.  These are the ideals that motivate Special Ops Survivors. Honor the fallen and remember the sacrifices of them and their families. Embrace the surviving spouse and let them know they are not alone. Empower the surviving spouse to charge forward and live fulfilling lives. Assist when needed but no hand outs, just hand ups.  It is this commitment to fulfilling the battlefield promises that Cajun Ammo has chosen to spotlight and support Special Ops Survivors. 

Cajun Ammo is a proud sponsor of TEAM: Special Ops Survivors, a motivated team of civilians and retired military that desire to give back to the families of those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice. The Team trains and competes year round in the new wave of "Mudders" . All members wear uniforms and equipment, similar to that utilized of SOF Personnel.  At each race, each team member represents one particular fallen Hero of Special Operations and their Surviving Spouses by donning memorial name tapes of the fallen hero, including their name, rank, unit and KIA date, unit logo, and also the individuals Unit Patch.  Team members are educated personally by the Surviving Spouse with all critical and personal information regarding the fallen Hero, so as to be able to memorialize them in discussion with surrounding race participants.  After each race is completed the original patches and name tapes are returned to the Surviving Spouse and a copy of the memorial name tape is rotated to their pack.  At the next event, a different group of Heroes and their Surviving Spouses are honored.  Through commitment, team work  and the desire to never quit despite adversity, TEAM: Special Ops Survivors honors the memory of the fallen heroes and their families, much as the heros would have done.
