What began with a simple question over a dinner conversation between four senior executives and Rob O’Neill, the U.S. Navy SEAL who killed Osama Bin Laden, “What are you going to do next?” has evolved into a four Phase program that curates the transition experience for Special Operators of all services. Every year since inception, we have increased the number of Special Operator veterans supported and funds raised.

SOTF has transitioned over 300 Special Operators into over 150 of our Nation’s high-performing companies distributed across America – from Boston to Los Angeles.
