The Special Forces Charitable Trust (SFCT) will be helping Arlington National Cemetery to remember and honor our Veterans by laying remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country’s fallen heroes on December 19th, 2020 at Arlington National Cemetery.

These wreaths are not free by any means and the SFCT is stepping in to help to ensure all veterans have a wreath. You can help them by sponsoring a wreath here. Their goal, which they are approaching, is to sponsor 2,000 wreaths.

Most do not know that Arlington National Cemetery is the final resting place of over 400,000 men and women. An average of 25 burials are performed each day. Each year for Memorial Day, a flag is placed by every tombstone, monument, and columbarium row in the cemetery. In the holiday season, volunteers continue this practice by placing wreaths instead of flags.

U.S. presidents buried at Arlington National Cemetery include John F. Kennedy and William Howard Taft.

The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, located at the cemetery, is guarded 24/7 by the best, most qualified members of the 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment, also known as The Old Guard. Formed in 1784, The Old Guard is the oldest active-duty infantry unit in the Army.

SFCT is a 501(c)(3) charity that provides meaningful and sustainable support to the families of our Green Berets. It supports timely, innovative, and comprehensive programs and services designed to enhance the well-being and health of both the Special Forces soldier and his family.

On December 10th, 2020 SFCT hosted the first-ever Army Special Forces – Celebrity Tactical Challenge at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. The goal was to raise $100k for SF families. This was a one-of-a-kind, truly unique opportunity for teams from the U.S. Army Special Forces and the National Celebrity communities to unite and compete in precision marksman skills, tactical movement, and physical endurance.
