The Legion Fund honors the service and sacrifice of 5th Group Soldiers and families.
During this difficult time as events unfold in Afghanistan, we thank the extraordinary warriors of 5th Group for their service to this country. They answered the call that most are unable or unwilling to answer, and we honor their bravery, excellence and courage in keeping us safe.
De Oppresso Liber.
The Legion Fund assists 5th Group Soldiers and their families by supporting seven essential needs.
- Emergency Needs
- Educational Scholarships
- Families of Fallen Heroes (Gold Star)
- Medical Therapies
- Child Care
- Catastrophe Fund
- Team Building
These seven lanes, or pillars of support, were chosen and identified as most critical in coordination with 5th Group Command, Unit spouses, veterans, and Gold Star families.
The Legion Fund’s historical expense ratio hovers near 5%, among the lowest for military charities.
5th Special Forces Group (Airborne)
These exceptionally trained warriors have been at the forefront of combat operations since leading our nation’s response in Afghanistan after the attacks of 9/11.
Deployments are frequent, long-duration missions in remote, high-risk areas placing a heavy burden on these Special Operators and their families.
The Legion Fund strives to ease the stresses endured by the Soldiers and their families.
