Charlie's Story

Shortly after C4 was killed in the town of Telskuf, Iraq, an Iraqi priest, Father Rem, dedicated a church bell that was sent to his parish from a sister parish (Order of St. Lazaurus) from the United States. In his dedication, Father Rem said,

“The American soldier, Navy SEAL Charles Keating, died right here in this town, on this border where we are standing. Here on this border, his blood was mixed with the blood of the young soldiers from this town, who defended the freedom of this town. In Charlie’s name, this bell will be placed in the tower of this church behind me. I am praying for his soul. This bell from now on will be called the Charles Keating Bell of Freedom.”

For a Great Cause

The sustainability of our foundation relies on public support and donations. Your donations go directly towards our mission of supporting our SEALs and helping to “Preserve The Family”. A 560-acre developed ranch located in the mountains of Eastern San Diego County, a 60-minute drive from San Diego, will function as a unique private setting to encourage family bonding pre-deployment, during deployment, and post-combat deployments.
