A member of the armed forces lost to service through death, wounds, illness, capture, or because his or her whereabouts or condition cannot be determined.
To provide serious attention, support and protection to.
Casualty Care defined at the GBF:
To pay close attention to, support and protect a member of the US Army Special Forces (aka The Green Berets) who has sustained wounds, injuries or illness due to their service to the United States of America. Green Berets are deployed in over 40 countries at any given time in War Time as well as Peace Time.
Seventy-five percent of the GBF’s support is casualty care for Green Berets. Casualty Care support is provided in two forms:
Casualty Care Check (C3):
A $1k check is provided to the Green Beret immediately upon being MEDEVAC’d out of theater to a military treatment facility (MTF) away from their Permanent Duty Station. This $1k check is meant to support with unexpected costs that come with being hospitalized for long periods of time away from home.
It is often the case that a combination of Army provided medical services and support are just what it takes for recovery and return to duty, or the transition to a civilian career. When more is needed we address those needs on a case-by-case basis, making every effort to accomodate.
The APFT is approved for those with permanent or long-term profiles. We were honored to provide funding for a road bike with alterations to a traumatically wounded SF Soldier who has a fused ankle and is required to perform the alternate PT test where a timed 5-mile bike ride replaces the timed 2 mile run.
