The Special Forces are unique within the military community and, because of that, the Military Special Operations Family Collaborative (MSOFC) saw a need to assist these ops warriors and families in acquiring collaborative health and well-being. It's a mission that blends well with AAFMAA's mission of supporting the financial well-being of military servicemembers and their families so they can live their best lives through every stage of life.
Sarah Bumgardner, AAFMAA Director of Partnerships and Member Engagement, spoke with KaLea Lehman, Founder and Executive Director of MSOFC, about the unique challenges those in the special forces community have when transitioning from service and how MSOFC is providing them support. They discussed how the unique aspects of the SOF community impact long-term health, family, finances, and a servicemember's legacy. Watch the recap of their conversation here:
