Our first Summer program, TF 16, is now complete.
With 4 more members from the SOF community finishing our weeklong program, that brings our total recipients to 71! One SOF Operator from last week, who just returned from his 19th deployment, had this to say about our work at #bigskybravery “What did Big Sky Bravery mean to me? Plain and simple, it meant my Happiness! Over the last 15+ years of service I have drastically changed as a man, and not in the good way. I was once a very happy, upbeat, outgoing young man and over the years I slowly withdrew from others and the world around me. Not only did my family see it, everyone around me could tell that I was struggling with being able to deal with demons inside, yet no one knew what to do to help me. I went through a very long, difficult divorce as a direct result of what was going on, leaving me completely alone. Big Sky Bravery helped me remember who I truly am, who I once was. It helped me remember what it truly felt like to be happy, and more importantly, finally be at peace with what has happened. For the first time in years I feel that I am able to finally move forward with my life, to be able to truly live again. Without this absolutely amazing opportunity to spend a week with my friends/teammates/brothers, I would have continued down a very lonely dark path of isolation. I am re-energized and for once looking forward to what is in store for my future. I owe my life to Big Sky Bravery and am incredibly grateful for the opportunity I had, it truly was the best week of my life. Thank you!”
