Special Forces “Chill Out”

CCI/Speer sponsors their regional Special Forces Association’s (SFA) hosting of respites to give active duty Special Operations much-needed family time.

SFA Montana hosts four respite events annually that focus on “the soldier and their family.” Many of the men and women, who are selected by their units to attend, have been decorated for Valor and received Purple Heart awards for wounds suffered in battle.

The photograph is from the Whitefish respite which centers around skiing, dog sledding and snowmobile rides at the Whitefish Mountain Resort in Montana. The respite included members of the Northwest Special Forces, Rangers, 160th Aviation and their families. All major costs for the respite – air travel, motel, car rental, most meals, vehicle rental, snowmobile touring, ski lessons, rentals and lift tickets and other activities were paid for by the supports of SFA Montana. CCI/Speer is a major sponsor for the Special Forces Association Chapter 28.
