All of us at The Special Forces Charitable Trust mourn the loss of our Honorary Board Member, Thomas McLemore.  Tom served two tours in the Vietnam War.  During his 24 years of service, he served with distinction in the Army 5th Special Forces Group, as well as the 25th Infantry Division, and a Drill Sergeant at Fort Jackson, SC.  We are truly honored to have known and worked with Tom.

Tom was interred at Ft. Jackson National Cemetery on July 23rd with military honors.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to the Special Forces Association (4990 Doc Bennett Road, Fayetteville, NC).

The Special Forces Community

There are currently seven Special Forces Groups, two of which are National Guard Special Forces, which are headquartered in seven states: Washington, North Carolina, Kentucky, Florida, Colorado, Utah, and Alabama.  The National Guard Special Forces Groups also have subordinate units in 17 states. Special Forces Soldiers are also headquartered in Okinawa, Japan and Stuttgart, Germany.

Special Forces Soldiers’ missions involve: Counterterrorism, Direct Action, Foreign Internal Defense, Special Reconnaissance, and Unconventional Warfare. The global security environment remains one of uncertain and persistent conflicts, wherein our nation’s Special Forces will continue to play a leading role in waging unconventional warfare and building partner nation capacity.

The Green Berets motto, “De Oppresso Liber”, means “To Free the Oppressed”; that motto reminds us all that freedom is not free.  Known as the “Quiet Professionals”, Special Forces Soldiers maintain a proud history of not seeking recognition for their deeds, but recognizing that they are accountable to the American public.  These “Quiet Professionals” represent 62% of the casualties in the Special Operations Community since 9/11, and the need for their special brand of military expertise has never been greater.
