Inside The Station Foundation
We began this journey over ten years ago, and in that time we’ve quietly built a community dedicated to healing our Special Operations Community, a force that carries both the tremendous responsibility for protecting our national interests and the unforgiving burdens of war.
Hundreds of workshops and thousands of people call The Station home — families that continue to serve who look for respite and assistance moving forward, those beyond uniform seeking reconciliation and peace, and our most sacred families, the families of our Fallen, that we honor with the name Gold Star, who truly gave everything.
This SITREP, or Situation Report, is our inaugural, periodic update to you about our operations and their life-changing effects on real people. We’ve had a very busy year, and I hope you enjoy these highlights. Thank you for making all of this possible.
