This year's 11th Annual Joint Forces Fundraiser

This year we raised and donated $110,000 to support the Shadow Warriors Project, a foundation created by Mark Geist, a private security contractor, who was injured saving American lives in 2012. Mark's experience in Benghazi is documented in the book and movie titled 13 Hours. This one-of-a-kind charity is dedicated to the support of private military security contractors, conducting paramilitary security operations in some of the world’s most dangerous areas who do not receive the same support offered to injured active military or veterans.   Thank you for your generous contributions, together we can make a difference!
