Train With SEALs
If you’re anything like most patriotic Americans, you have a major respect and admiration for our nation’s Special Forces operators. I’m sure that you’ve probably said to yourself, “I could never do that” or “If I could just train with them for one day…” You may actually have that chance thanks to Omaze and Team Rubicon.
Or maybe you’re one of those guys that thinks he’s tough dookie and could take on a SEAL at paintball. I think you’d be better off being on their side.
Right now Omaze is running a campaign to help Team Rubicon empower 250 veterans to be first responders in disaster relief. Only their campaign has a twist, where they will match donations with the chance to win once-in-a-lifetime experiences like the ones above.
This campaign has something for everyone. The ladies have a chance to go on a private plane and wine date with two Navy SEALs. For the tactically minded, engage in a battle of wits playing and discussing strategy over a game of Risk with General Anthony Zinni. For Blackfive fans, you could get a chance at scotch tasting with Timothy Olyphant, star of Justified, or be a backstage judge on the set of Cupcake Wars (Uncle Jimbo’s favorite show).
