We recently went on a trip with TFD and my husband and I cannot say enough kind words about Keline and the organization. Their passion for those serving and who have served in the military and their families is evident through their generosity and gracious compassion. Our family immediately felt surrounded by genuine and sincere love. We are incredibly thankful for TFD and all they do!

Task Force Dagger has been there through my husband's recovery every step of the way. Their continued support means the world to our family and we will forever be grateful for what they have done and continue to do for us. Their Recreational Therapy Adaptive Events and SOF Health Initiative have shown my husband that he can get better from a combat injury and that he has a great team in his corner. Thank you for everything!

Task Force Dagger has been a blessing for me. Not only are they funding for medical treatments that would not be done by the VA or DOD. But also putting like minded veterans together to help with the rough times. Allowing us to talk with those who are going through the same problems. I can't thank them enough. Keep up the great work.

My wife and I just returned from the 2017 Winter Warrior retreat in Whitefish, Montana. We can’t express enough our gratitude to SFA Chapter 28 and TFD for this once in a lifetime trip. Everything about the retreat from the skiing, dogsledding, snowmobiling the amazing dinners and the meeting new friends was amazing! The last 15 years and countless deployments has not been easy on the families and it was such a refreshing trip to spend with my wife before I head out again this month. Thank you again for your unwavering service to the Special Forces Regiment and our families! De Oppresso Liber

I just returned back from a TFD event in the Grand Cayman. All I can say is WOW!!! I had the time of my life. I got to see old friends and make new ones. TFD continues to go above and beyond to help injured SOF personnel. The event not only takes you away from the everyday struggles of injuries, but they allow you to feel apart of something more. You move at your own pace and you push yourself to your own limits. There is no Dr. asking you a ton of questions, just you and your brothers making it happen. Everyone suffers and struggles in their own ways. When you are surrounded by your brothers on your left/right; for that moment no matter how long it is you feel safe. You know that your brother has your back and you have his. Everyone has a list of injuries from PTSD, TBI, gunshot wound, amputation, etc but when we are all together we are NORMAL... We are one team striving for the same goal. We talk, we laugh, we cry. We salute our brothers/sisters that have made the ultimate sacrifice and we continue to strive to get better. We share stories that only "WE" would understand. We make jokes about each other that make you laugh out loud in the middle of a crowd. "SCUBA STEVE is dressed already"..."Did he get bit by a SHARK.... Can you please stop doing Cheetah flips Air hog"......."Here goes Muscles"......LOL!!! These moments can't be made with a pill, a shot or surgery. Memories like these do provide HOPE. It's moments like this that keeps us from the evils that we think about each and every day. TFD continues to make these memories for many of our injured SOF operators and I am honored to be apart of such a humbling organization. Thank you TFD.......

Just returned from an event Task Force Dagger (TFD) and SOCOM coordinated. I did not ask to go, if you had asked me how I was doing I would of told you I was just fine. However, I wasn't fine and I didn't know it. My caregiver knew I wasn't well, she had noticed I hadn't left the house in about 4-5 months. I was exhausting her, this wonderful lady is always worried and caring to a point of fatigue. She needed a rest, I needed to get out. She knew TFD could help and the people would keep an eye on me. As I said she worries to the point of fatigue. The event was a dive trip to get your next level of diving certification. We had a group of guys that made me feel as if I was with family. You could challenge yourself and know those around you were looking out for you. Not only did I get out of the house I was thriving in a way I hadn't experienced in a long time. I have a new skill and confidence that I hope will continue to get me out of the house and my spouse some rest.

Love, Support, Friendship, Caring, Encouragement, Challenging, these are a few words we would use to describe TFD. They are leading the way in how to assist wounded veterans and their families, to include recreational care, emotional care, and cutting edge therapies to better the lives of injured veterans. We would like to thank Keith and Keline for taking the time to invest in our family.

Mentally, Physically, Emotionally, and Spiritually, you have motivated so many, to do so much, with so little. Your organization is a reminder of the good in people.

Thank you.
Rick and Kristine

When my unit refused to give my wife command sponsorship I was forced to purchase my wife's plane ticket out of pocket, this put a financial strain on my family. Task Force Dagger came in and covered the cost of the ticket. Thank you for your support TFD.

I am so grateful to have been assisted and cared for without any hesitation when I felt all was lost. Thankfully the TFD Foundation is an organization that is dedicated to help those in times of need for families in their dark hours. I can not say or thank them enough for what they have done for my family. The contacts and people involved with this Organization are among those who hearts seem to have no boundaries for the care to do whatever they can, if they can. Thank you Task Force Dagger.

I'm not an SF guy but I have received outstanding support from Task Force Dagger. They have been most generous in supporting myself and my good friend Chuck Taylor (7 SFG). TFD provided transportation on a few occasions to support our excursions out west to participate in outdoor programs.
