Special Operations Care Fund

The Special Operations Care Fund (SOC-F) was founded in 2014 and is a non-profit philanthropic organization, organized under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Our primary mission is to provide direct support to both active and retired members of the U.S. Special Operations Forces (SOF) Community and their families. SOC-F directs its primary funding towards addressing critical gaps in healthcare and family-related concerns. These programs save lives and give an opportunity for our elite military members and their families to experience life changing, transformative care.

These “gaps” primarily relate to family issues and behavioral health treatments. SOC-F supports Gold Star Kids family retreats and intensive therapy for at-risk marriages, as well as behavioral health treatments such as Magnetic Resonance Therapy (MeRT) – a highly customized use of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), psychedelic therapies for Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and 12-Step treatment programs for alcoholism and addiction. Secondarily, we support other recognized and trusted 501(c)(3) organizations who focus on similar medical and family needs of our SOF war fighters and their families.

ABOUT Elevated Silence

Elevated Silence exists to make products that deliver one of the most memorable days of your life. Seriously. In our modern world, we spend more time looking at screens than engaging with people and experiencing life. At Elevated Silence, we want to change that. Of course, awesome suppressor design, best-in-class material selection, and quality construction are imperative. But if using our product doesn’t lead to quality time at the range – connecting, laughing, training with friends and loved ones, what’s it all for? When our customers reminisce on the top 5 days of their life, we want Elevated Silence to be part of that memory. It’s what drives us to make amazing suppressors.

We may have been born in the most amazing country in the world, but our nations core was rocked when those four planes struck two skyscrapers, the Pentagon, and a field in Shanksville, PA.

We have hundreds of friends who volunteered to confront evil on the other side of the globe to guarantee that war would stay in someone else’s neighborhood. Eternally grateful for their sacrifices, Elevated Silence helps fund select organizations, like The Special Operations Care Fund, that help those who fight for our American Dream. When we heard about Task Force Expedition and the opportunity to support SOC-F, we were all in. We are humbled to be a small part of it.
