Entercom Communications Corporation launched a company-wide campaign to assist families who lost loved ones to combat in Afghanistan. The campaign spanned 23 markets and 111 stations. Entercom Norfolk alone raised nearly $50,000 in donated goods and services for the Navy SEAL Foundation.
On August 6, thirty American service members died in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan. Most of the victims were elite Navy SEALs, including several members of SEAL Team Six, the elite unit that killed Osama bin Laden. It was the largest single loss of U.S. life since the beginning of the 2001 Afghan War and is the largest single loss ever suffered by the SEAL community.
The Navy SEAL Foundation provides support in times of adversity and recognizes the achievements of U.S. Navy SEALs.
