How We Work

One Team. One Fight.


Established as a 501c3 nonprofit organization in 2016, FORCE BLUE seeks to address two seemingly unrelated problems — the rapidly declining health of our planet’s marine resources and the difficulty returning combat veterans have in adjusting to civilian life — through one, mission-focused program.

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.

The steps to mission success are simple.

FORCE BLUE recruits the most highly skilled, highly trained individuals within the veteran Spec Ops community, retools them under the tutelage of esteemed marine scientists and conservationists, then redeploys them on missions of preservation and restoration around the globe.

The result is a work force capable of achieving great things for themselves, their families, the communities FORCE BLUE serves and the planet as a whole.
