I am honored to announce the formation of a new charitable organization called the R&S Foundation. The R&S Foundation (named for Recon & Sniper) was formed to help our veteran Brothers and Sisters in need. Many are unaware that 22 veterans commit suicide per day. Many more struggle with physical, emotional and financial challenges. The Recon, Scout/Sniper, SARC, and MARSOC communities are in need of a foundation to help those who are in need of support. The R&S Foundation was born of a simple idea. Several years ago a Reconnaissance Sniper created a loose affiliation of Snipers, Recon Marines, SARCs, and MARSOC Marines which began informally helping each other. From this seed of an early idea some brothers from the community took the proverbial bull by the horns and created the R&S Foundation. Currently, the group is putting together the ‘non profit’ packet and have seated the Board of Directors (I am privileged to have been asked to be on the BOD). If you get a chance, please take a look at the Facebook page and give us a ‘like’. You can reach the Foundation by emailing; firstname.lastname@example.org
