Ohio Green Beret Support Group, LLC

The Ohio Green Beret Support Group, LLC is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that solely supports active duty and retired Special Forces soldiers and their families.  It is a subsidiary to The Buckeye Chapter of the Special Forces Association. Ohio has one Special Forces unit that deploys frequently.

The Ohio Green Beret Support Group’s Tax Identification Number (TIN) is 83-1512941.  The IRS is nearing completion of its final review for establishment of this organization, and the IRS issued this EIN to us for use by donors while the review nears completion.

The Ohio Green Beret Support Group has no expenses related to compensation of its members.  All donations are used for the following initiatives:

  • Scholarship program for Green Berets and their immediate families and direct descendants.  Scholarships and tuition grants are available for university degrees of all types as well as vocational training.

  • Gold Star Family support.  We have provided thousands of dollars in direct support of the widows, children and immediate family members of Green Berets who have lost their lives in combat or died from combat wounds.

  • Family support and unit support.  We pay for all expenses related to family day events and Christmas parties (including gifts for children) of Ohio’s only Special Forces unit.

  • Family support of wounded Green Berets.  We pay for travel expenses for family members to visit their Green Berets who have been wounded or injured and remain recovering at military hospitals.  

  • The Ohio Military Hall of Fame for Valor.  We pay for the nomination expenses of Green Berets inducted into this prestigious organization.  We also make donations directly to the Hall of Fame for Valor to support its operations.

All you need to bring is comfortable clothing with pockets in the pants.  We will begin with a safety briefing at 9:30 am and will conclude near 3:00 pm. Sponsors are provided the following:

  • Rifle, pistol and shotgun for use during the event.

  • Ammunition for all three weapons.

  • Hearing protection.

  • A Green Beret coach for the day.

  • Lunch

  • Refreshments during the entire day.
