RIP Warrior and Friend
The Navy SEALs Fund is saddened to share that we lost one of our brothers this week. Dan Cerillo (Taco) was not only a fellow SEAL, but also one of our Board Members who helped us raise awareness and funding to help care for his fellow SEALs. We are still in shock over the sudden passing of Taco. Our hearts are hurting at this loss of someone so special. Our thoughts and prayers of condolences go out to not only his wife and family, but also to his fellow teammates who served with him, knew him and to whom he helped over the years. When someone so special leaves us it is felt not only by the immediate family, but also by all who knew him. RIP Taco, you will be sorely missed but never forgotten.

Founded by Navy SEALs, Run by Navy SEALs, Supporting Navy SEALs
The Navy SEALs Fund - Brotherhood Beyond Battlefield ® mission is composed of three primary focus areas: Emergency Assistance ( aka Quick Reaction Funding), PTS/TBI support, and Navy SEAL Community outreach programs.
As a small non-profit, we remain quick, flexible, and responsive; capable of providing Emergency Assistance within hours for the unique needs of current, retired, and former Navy SEAL teammates and their families. These needs for assistance can be due to a result of injury, loss of life, transitional needs, or some of life's unexpected events.
PTS/TBI support has become a greater focus area as the Navy SEALs Fund is one of only a very few charities providing financial assistance for alternative PTS/TBI treatment options for Navy SEALs. The ability to offer choices in care is vital to ensuring that Navy SEALs and their families have the greatest chance of recovery from the effects of PTS/TBI.
The Navy SEAL Community outreach program was launched in 2018 with the first initiative, Frogman Down. This is one example of the support provided by Navy SEALs Fund to all generations of those who have earned the Trident. Our SEAL Community outreach program is focused on strengthening the bonds between Brothers, building strong families and strong communities.
