The All In, All The Time Fund, established in 2008, is a tribute to the memory of SOCS Tom Valentine. Tom was an elite warrior who lived his life in accordance with the special operator’s code, which all SEALs strive to attain. Tom was fiercely loyal to his country, his team and his teammates; he served with honor and integrity on and off the battlefield; he stood ready to lead, ready to follow, and he never quit; he always took responsibility for his actions and those of his teammates; he excelled as a warrior through discipline and innovation; and he trained for war and fought to win at all costs against our nation’s enemies.
Tom was a father, brother, son and husband. His greatest love was his family and serving his country. We honor Tom by keeping is his sacrifice and legacy alive.
Through the All In, All The Time Fund, we will fill the needs of the surviving spouses and children of our fallen warriors. Many of the short term needs have been met through various organizations. It’s the in between needs and the long term programs, i.e. legal fees (wills, estate management fees, etc.); household & auto repairs. Counseling assistance (outside of the military chain) and so on that we need to cover. Their needs are many, their needs are great. Through the All In, All The Time Fund we can alleviate some of the financial burdens that arise months even years after the funeral.
The All In, All The Time Fund will support the various benevolent organizations with the Naval Special Warfare community.
