Who is TEAM Special Ops Survivors?
TEAM Special Ops Survivors memorializes our survivors, their heroes and their families on an on-going basis. TEAM Special Ops Survivors operates on three principles: COMMITMENT to a cause higher than one’s self, the will to SACRIFICE time spent in training in order to HONOR those who have paid the ultimate price for our freedoms.
At extreme obstacle races, all TEAM members wear desert tan uniforms, similar to that utilized by Special Ops personnel, including rucksacks. At these events, each TEAM member represents a different one of our survivors’ fallen heroes by donning a memorial patch that includes the fallen hero’s name, rank, unit and date of death. TEAM members work together at the events, much like our operators worked together on their teams, to conquer any obstacles. During the event, TEAM members share the stories of their heroes with other race participants. The goal at these races isn’t to win, it’s to finish the race together.
TEAM Special Ops Survivors Leaves no man behind at the Spartan Race -Dallas at AT&T Stadium! On the final leg of the race, the Team was filmed, on spectator camera, as they carried one their own to the finish.
