I want to personally thank each and every one of you for your continued support to the National Navy SEAL museum. Your generosity makes my mission of preserving the history and heritage of the Navy SEALs, honoring our fallen at the Navy SEAL Memorial and caring for our families through the Trident House Charities program that much easier. Since January of 2017 we have hosted over ten families to include two Gold Star families at the Trident House. We have sponsored a Navy SEAL Master Chief’s child in need of special autism treatment and donated to the US Southern Command Special Operations Memorial located in your neck of the woods at Homestead Air Reserve Base. We are also in the process of collecting scholarship packages from deserving Special Ops children in both the US Navy and US Army and will give out over 100K this year. And the list goes on. We are keeping busy up here in FT. Pierce and if you get a chance to come visit us I know you will be proud not oInly of the Museum, but also of the things your donations allow us to support. Thank You.Rick Kaiser
Navy SEAL Museum
In April, 2016, John & Mary invited all Ocean Reef members and friends to attend SEALs UP CLOSE & PERSONAL. The National Navy UDT-SEAL Museum and Memorial presented a special sneak preview of the full-length motion picture Megan Leavey at the Ocean Reef Cultural Center.
Megan Leavey is based on the true life story of a young marine corporal (Kate Mara) whose unique discipline and bond with her military combat dog saved many lives during their deployment in Iraq. When she is assigned to clean up the K9 unit after a disciplinary hearing, Leavey identifies with a particularly aggressive dog, Rex, and is given the chance to train him. Over the course of their service, Megan and Rex completed more than 100 missions until an IED explosion injures them, putting their fate in jeopardy. Directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite (Blackfish) from a screenplay by Pamela Gray and Annie Mumolo & Tim Lovestedt, the film also stars Edie Falco, Ramón Rodríguez, Bradley Whitford, and Common.
In 2018, we cordially invite all Ocean Reef members to attend the Recreation of SEALs UP CLOSE & PERSONAL.
