The cases of three Navy SEALs who have been accused of assaulting a suspected terrorist and then attempting to cover it up have drawn a lot of attention – and support. There have been various ways through which people were able to express support for the SEALs and provide them with much-needed financial assistance to help defray legal expenses. Support rallies have been organized and websites set up for charities that accept donations and hand these donations over to the SEALs’ lawyers.
The U.S. Navy SEALs Store is expressing its support for Navy SEALs Matthew McCabe, Julio Huertas and Jonathan Keefe by selling t-shirts that show that they are behind the SEALs.
These shirts, however, give the wearer more than just a way of showing to the world that he or she is behind the Navy SEALs; the U.S. Navy SEALs store is donating half of the t-shirts’ purchase price – $10 – to the Warrior Defense Fund.
The Warrior Defense Fund is providing financial assistance to Navy SEALs McCabe, Huertas and Keefe. As of mid-January, they reported that they have an estimated $10,000 in the bank that is ready to be given out to the SEALs, the portions of funding dispensed to be determined based on who needs what the most.
Aside from purchasing Support the SEALs shirts, you can also make donations directly to the Fund. Contributions are fully tax-deductible.
