In Memory of

A gift “in memory of” is a tangible way to honor your loved one while supporting our mission of uniting the community of Special Operations Veterans with the world of marine conservation for the betterment of both. Your dollars will help continue our efforts for the men and women of Force Blue to adapt their military training and teamwork skills to protect one of the Earth’s critically marine habitats. This gift will honor someone that has passed and provide purpose and empowerment to these veterans for healing of themselves and as they focus on healing our planet. Every coral we plant, every turtle we save, each piece of marine debris we collect begins with you. Your memorial gift helps us to move forward in our fight to save our planet by creating eco-warriors as we continue our global conservation efforts.
