Helping the entire family heal with Rehabilitative Adaptive Events.
Task Force Dagger Special Operations Foundation sponsors Rehabilitative Adaptive Events (RAE) that foster a sense of well-being, offer encouragement, and assist with the service members rehabilitation and recovery from wounds or injuries sustained while serving our country. We believe that when a Special Operations Forces service member is injured, the whole family is injured and must heal together.
Family participation in activities such as scuba diving, white water rafting, biking or kayaking, fosters family bonding and teamwork necessary for overcoming service-related injuries and helps the family heal together.
Task Force Dagger Special Operations Foundation works with SOF units and the US Special Operations Warrior Care Program to identify individuals that could benefit from RAE.
Our events include those who are wounded, ill, or injured and their families, as well as Gold Star families and other families who have lost loved ones in the service of their country.

Joint Recovery Team
Too often when a SOF service member is injured or wounded and are unable to remain on their team, they say they have lost their sense of purpose. Our mission-based therapy events are designed to restore the sense of purpose by providing a specific task that challenges the individual both physically and mentally.
The Joint Recovery Mission is our most impactful purpose-driven event. Members participating in the Joint Recovery Team assist in the mapping and documenting of potential archaeological sites where missing US Service Members lost in war and conflicts may be located.
There is potential for the SOF members to participate in the recovery and repatriation of missing U.S. Personnel. Keeping the promise to bring home soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice defending our country is a real world mission that gives SOF members a deeper purpose and focus in life.
Currently Task Force Dagger Special Operations Foundation is conducting an expedition in Saipan to map, document, search, and hopefully recover and repatriate an American Service Member(s) Killed In Action (KIA) Body Not Recovered (BNR) from World War II. Our team for this mission is the Department of Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA), The National Park Service (NPS), and East Carolina State University (ECU).
