There is a critical need to help recently retired Special Forces operators return to civilian life. These specialists often lack the structure and support needed for an easy transition; and these soldiers are among the least likely to ask for help. Combining concepts from the battlefield with ideas forged on the gridiron, the foundation has created The Stronghold that preserves bonds of brotherhood while providing tools and services that equip and empower our veterans to move forward. Former NFL players share many of the challenges that our SOF face during transition. Together we help build the foundation for success to navigate the future.
At our retreats, we connect operators with the services they need. We begin by assessing key issues then provide resource roadmaps, skill development seminars, a network of sponsors and an individualized roadmap to success.
