Bonefrog Coffee Company / US Navy
Today Tim will share with BBRC members the mission of Bonefrog Coffee, how it was created and the meaning behind the Bonefrog in the SEAL Teams. They take the saying "Long Live the Brotherhood" seriously. It is a life-long commitment to their Teammates before they go into combat that they will take care of each other's families if something happens. The mission of Bonefrog Coffee is to Honor the Fallen, continue to say their names and give back to the Naval Special Warfare Community.
Tim will share with us one of the amazing foundations supporting these efforts. The Navy SEAL Fund was created by SEAL's for SEAL's and is doing some outstanding work to help others. Your money goes directly to help those in need and no one in this organization takes a paycheck.
