Team H2O Frogs is paired with the The National Navy SEAL Museum and Memorial Trident House. The National Navy SEAL Museum and Memorial Trident House is a tranquil waterfront residence located directly along the beautiful Indian River, in Sebastian, Florida. The lovely home serves as a critical and complimentary respite for the families of U.S. Navy SEALs who were killed in the Line of Duty. It is also available to battle worn or injured SEALs and their families, as well as to other military personnel with similar needs.
The Trident House is a fully equipped, three bedroom three bath retreat that has an outdoor swimming pool and dock. Guests can view colorful sunrises, dolphins and pelicans soaring by from the covered back porch. As you may imagine, this serene environment is a powerful de-stressor and is highly conducive to the process of reconnecting fragile relationships.
In November of 2012, The Trident House hosted its first family with a very heavy heart. The family had very recently lost their son, who was a U.S. Navy SEAL. He was fighting in the global war against terror in Afghanistan and fighting against the same extended group of extremists who took responsibility for 9/11, an event that changed the way we all live our lives. He was fighting there, so that an event such as 9/11 never happens again…here!
After a long day of travel, the family arrived at the Trident House. They immediately took comfort in the private waterfront setting. During their stay, they attended the annual Muster event and received a personal tour of the Navy SEAL Museum and Memorial in Fort Pierce, Florida, which is about a 30 minute drive from the Trident House. The last event of their journey was attending the Memorial service for their son, whose name was recently engraved into the black granite walls of the Navy SEAL Memorial.
After the emotional ceremony, their spirits began to lift in the knowledge that the community truly cares. They also found comfort in knowing that their son’s legacy and sacrifice will always be honored at the Navy SEAL Museum and Memorial. In parting, they all commented about how wonderful their stay was in the Trident House and that they plan to return to the Memorial as often as possible.
The National Navy SEAL Museum, Memorial and Trident House are not federally funded. They rely solely on the generous contributions of patriotic and grateful supporters to continue their mission of preserving Naval Special Warfare history, honoring their fallen at the SEAL Memorial and caring for those warriors and families through the Trident House. They are a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. Your support is needed, appreciated, and makes a difference!
All money raised by this team will go to The National UDT Navy SEAL Museum and Trident House.
Swim With A Mission
The 4th Annual Swim With A Mission, an Open Water Swim Race and Festival was scheduled for Saturday, July 11th at Wellington State Park in Bristol NH. Unfortunately due to COVID-19 we have shifted our event to a Virtual Event. We would much rather have our live event and are disappointed about the change but we know that it is necessary at this point. Even in these tough times, we hope you will help us stay true to our mission to raise money to help Veterans and inspire others to help.
Virtual Events are open to everyone and will take place from July 1-31. Participants can choose to swim (1K, 5K or 10K), paddle (1K, 5K or 10K) or take on the SEAL Team NH Challenge. All participants are encouraged to raise funds that will go to our Veterans who need our help more than ever. Swimmers can also choose to swim more than once during the month of July and they will be able to record distances and times. Go to www.swimwithamission.org for more details.
