Every request is a mission that will be accomplished.


For ten years, Task Force Dagger Special Operations Foundation has been a reliable resource for USSOCOM. Service members and retired Special Operations Forces and their families often have needs that are not covered by DoD, VA or military insurance.

This is where we fill the gap. With an average response time of two hours, our Immediate Needs Program provides a rapid resolution to most situations and requests from USSOCOM. Needs covered are diverse and apply to both medical and other immediate support requests as identified from either the unit chain of command or the US Special Operations Command Warrior Care Program. This partnership ensures that every need is vetted and verified.

We are the only Special Operations Forces-specific organization to provide this support to all Special Operations teams.

What is an immediate need?

An Immediate Need Request is primarily financial support from Task Force Dagger Special Operations Foundation to service members to cover unexpected financial burdens that are not covered by DoD, VA or Tricare. Immediate Needs Support can also be providing resources to the service member or their family.

As Special Operations Members ourselves, we know the importance of having a team to rely on when things get tough. TFDSOF offers that security and support during the unexpected.

These are a few of the things we support:

  • Support for family members undergoing treatment for cancer and other illnesses/needs where there are gaps in coverage through Tricare or the VA.
  • Travel, transportation and lodging for families to be united during illness, treatments or during tragedy.
  • Service dog donations to Special Operations Families.
  • Purchase of medical equipment for Special Operations Families not covered by Tricare.
  • Burial and funeral expenses for Special Operations Service Members killed in action.


My family and I sincerely thank you for the support provided so I could travel to Walter Reed Hospital. Your support allowed me to be at my Soldier daughter’s side as she underwent extensive surgery. I was her non-medical assistant and actually transported her to and from her surgery, then spent 10 days caring for her non-medical needs. It is quite comforting knowing that your organization exists and takes care of our service members and their families. Our heartfelt gratitude goes to all of Task Force Dagger and their contributors.”

I would not be here today if it wasn’t for the things TFDF interjected into me.

The difference that it’s made in my life and all the friends that I’ve recommended the program to is monumental.
