*** Raider 7 Wristbands were created to commemorate the fallen. They were donated to the friends and family members of the Raider 7. Raider Project did not offer this item for sale.
The Raider 7 Memorial Apparel endeavor was put together by the Raider Project immediately following the tragedy. The Raider Project consists of a very small team of staff and volunteers.
The Raider Project's goal was to first respond to immediate needs that arose among Raider 7 families. Financial assistance, provision of travel and memorial support were immediately provided to several wives/partners of the fallen as the Raider Project was informed of specific needs.
In the summer of 2015, the Raider Project then met with the wives and the remaining team members to discuss their wishes.
On October 19th, 2015 the remaining funds were dispersed evenly between the 7 wives/partners of the fallen heroes.
In addition, Raider Project also hosted the Raising Raiders Crowdrise link on our pages to channel money directly to their organization and support the cause even further.
as a result of your support, Raider Project was able to raise an additional $20,621 for families through the Raising Raider charity Crowdrise fundraising page.
Brandan became a dad on August 28, 2009 at7:06 am. I had an emergency Cesarean because our sons heart rate went down drastically during delivery - It was happening so fast we didn’t even have time to think
I was physically injured during service to my country, I was also emotionally shattered; transitioning to civilian life a constant challenge. I have had some success with equine therapy, the most successful treatment I had been through before the Serenity Trauma Healing Center program. The unique resources offered by Karl Monger and Gallantfew are like none other that I have ever had the privilege or access to in the past.
Since all of the other participants share similar experiences, you develop a tight bond by swapping stories and having some laughs after a day of climbing. You get the feeling that even though your time in the military may have past, the brotherhood in which you share still exists. They are here for me and I am here for them, no matter what.
