Sua Sponte Foundation

Mission - “The Sua Sponte Foundation is an all-volunteer 501c3 non-profit organization comprised of a small group of veteran 1/75 Rangers and patriotic civilians. The Foundation was created in 2010 to provide assistance to Rangers and families of the 1st Ranger Battalion, part of the U.S. Army’s elite 75th Ranger Regiment based at Hunter Army Airfield, Savannah, Ga. The Foundation’s name, Sua Sponte, is Latin for “of their own accord” and is the regimental motto.”

Meaning that these life saving professionals step forward first, fully knowing the inherent risk of their chosen profession. 

From a successful airfield seizure at Torrijos/Tocumen Airfield in Panama in 1989 during Operation Just Cause to rescuing Prisoner of War Private-First-Class Jessica Lynch in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003, the Rangers have been instrumental in combat operations around the world. The 75th Ranger Regiment has been on continual deployment since 9/11 and they are still successfully destroying and capturing terrorist networks. No other fighting unit has been constantly deployed.
