In 2009 after nearly 8 years of war, it was clear there were gaps in critical support our Special Operations  active  & veteran members and their families needed.  CSM Rick Walker had recently retired  after witnessing the impacts of these gaps which enabled him to bring current and relevant knowledge to help shed light on these needs.  It was then Frank, Rick, Keith and Ben decided to take action and form the Task Force Dagger Foundation to fill those gaps that the government, VA and their insurance wouldn’t cover for the Special Operations community and their Families.
