“Don Young Veterans Advancing Conservation Act” Introduced in Congress
The bill would provide federal grant funding to organizations who retrain and redeploy military Veterans to engage in marine conservation work.
By uniting the community of Special Operations veterans with the world of marine science and conservation, FORCE BLUE has created a transpartisan model of caring, cooperation and positive change with the power to restore lives and restore the planet.
In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of NOAA’s National Marine Sanctuary System, the Special Operations veterans of FORCE BLUE — working with our nation’s top scientists and environmentalists — will be launching a 5-year effort to conduct community conservation missions in and around each of the country’s 15 National Marine Sanctuaries.
Military veterans from FORCE BLUE launched their inaugural FORCE BLUE OCS (Ocean Conservation School) for Gold Star families earlier this month at Vortex Spring in Ponce DeLeon, FL.
FORCE BLUE veterans returned to LA. for a special Super Bowl week screening of the team’s documentary film “100 Yards of Hope”, hosted by NFL Salute to Service at the California Science Center.
