A note from The FEW's founder:

It’s been 15 years since I first went to war, and I am still humbled by the good, the bad, and the Brotherhood my adventures brought, but my Band of Brothers was torn away when I was medically retired. Most every Veteran has lost their Band in someway and that Brotherhood is why Warriors fight and also why he lives.

Since 2012 The FEW has been rallying Heroes and this year our Band grew by another 300! That is 300 more reasons to live for. The FEW’s success is because we use adventure as a way to unite and strengthen these Quiet Professionals and we need your help to rally, support, and even save more Veterans. Get involved today!

Exceptional Yours,
Ronny Sweger
US Army (Ret)

Ronny's story...

2017 Giving Campaign

The FEW is a very unique nonprofit organization that assists in the healing process of the families and veterans of Special Operations Forces, those recognized for Valorous actions, Prisoners of War and also those wounded in combat, regardless of era.  The FEW provides recreational and sporting events to enhance mental and physical health to better allow for successful reintegration with their family and community.

The goal of this campaign is to hit the ground running in 2017. Last year, with your support, The FEW was able to host over 300 Exceptional Warriors at events across the nation and in Mexico.  This year, with your support, we would like to double our efforts.  Our administration is based solely on volunteers so all donations go directly to supporting Veterans.

Our campaign goal is $20,000

Remember that there is no small donation for a great cause!

The FEW has been extremely busy and blessed this year.  We held over 40 adventures hosting over 300 Exceptional Warriors.  Many individuals, sponsors, and associates donated their time, talents and treasure to make these events a success. The FEW are extremely grateful for their enduring support and generosity.

With Oak Hill Marina and Bennington Boats, The FEW hosted 10 Exceptional families for a long weekend at Lake Okoboji, Iowa.  It was an amazing adventure of boating, park passes, fishing and a VIP LOCASH concert. The event was packed with family fun and moments to cherish!

The 3rd annual Oklahoma pheasant hunt was a huge success. Obviously,  the Warriors and their guests had a blast.

In the mountains of Utah Six Warfighters chased elk on the Freedom Hunt. This adventure was extra special as it reunited three Marines that hadn't seen each other in over 10 years. Watch the action...

For this group of warriors it would definitely be their wild white water rafting ride down the Nantahala in NC
