Creekside Mortgage is happy to announce that we are partnering with the Special Operations Warrior Foundation to help provide college educations to the children of fallen Special Operations forces. For every closed VA loan originated after July 1, 2009, Creekside Mortgage will donate $100 to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation in the name of the borrowing veteran. The foundation also provides assistance to special operations personnel who have been serverely wounded.
The Special Operations Warrior Foundation was started in 1980 as a scholarship fund named in honor of the legendary Army Green Beret Bull Simons. This fund provided college educations for surviving children of the men killed or incapacitated at Desert One.
Children awarded scholarship funds are survivors of Special Operations Forces of the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps. Currently, the foundation is providing scholarships for 760 children of over 600 Special Operations Forces who have passed away in service to the country.
At Creekside, we are veterans who want to support our fellow service members and their families in every way that we can–not just by providing expertise in using VA home loan benefits, but by supporting organizations who have common cause to support families of service members. When you choose Creekside for your lending needs, you are partnering with us to help children of deceased service members and to make a difference in the lives of others.
