R3 Teammates attend NSOF Gala

R3 was proud to be a Gold Sponsor for the Navy Special Operations Foundation (NSOF) Gala at The Hilton Main in Norfolk, VA.  NSOF’s vision is to ensure those who have selflessly served within the Navy Special Operations community are connected for life, and that they are never neglected or forgotten.  Among the R3 attendees were Dale Rock, Jeff Walker, John Coffey (R3 Alumnus), and Marc Tranchemontagne.

The NSOF was founded in memory of those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in defense of this nation.  Formed by active and former members and their spouses, their guiding principles are driven by the strong bonds created during nearly two decades of combat around the globe.  They understand through their experience what the families and operators need so they can stay in the fight and persevere through the most difficult circumstances.

As one of the most unique veterans memorials in the USA, Mt. Soledad is proud to honor veterans, living and deceased, from the Revolutionary War to the present day. Eleven curved walls contain more than 5,000 black granite plaques honoring our service men and women. Towering 822 feet above sea level, Mt. Soledad provides a stunning viewpoint of the entire San Diego region. On a clear day, one can see towns in Mexico to the south, to the mountains of Los Angeles in the north. As the highest point in the La Jolla area, Mt. Soledad gives a breathtaking view of Miramar Air Station, Torrey Pines Golf Course, UC San Diego, and more.
