About Special Operations Warrior Foundation
SOWF got its start in 1980 in the wake of the Iranian hostage crisis by providing college educations for the children of those American Special Operations forces killed or incapacitated during the attempted rescue of 53 citizens being held hostage by terrorists at the US Embassy in Tehran. Since then, America's Special Operations forces have suffered casualties at over 15 times the rate of conventional forces. Most of these casualties occur at an early age, at the beginning of their careers, thus leaving behind families who have yet to accumulate the resources to provide for their surviving children's college education. That's where SOWF comes in. For more information about SOWF and their mission, visit www.specialops.org
