Congratulations to Mike C from Missouri for Winning the SSD/SOC-F Rifle Raffle

Monday, December 18th, 2017

First off, I want to personally thank everyone who purchased raffle tickets for the SSD custom carbine. While Mike C of the great state of Missouri won the raffle, the real winners are four families who lost their husbands, fathers and sons. Your efforts raised $16,000 for those families.

While the raffle was hosted by our friends at the Special Operations Care Fund charity, the funds will be distributed to the beneficiaries by the Duskin-Stephens Foundation. Those beneficiaries are the families of four Soldiers, deployed to the African nation of Niger and assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 3rd Special Forces Group (Airborne), who were recently killed during a brutal gun battle with Muslim extremists. These four men…


SSG Bryan C. Black, SSG Jeremiah W. Johnson, SSG Dustin M. Wright, and SGT La David T. Johnson, you are not forgotten.

No one except the raffle host is taking a Dollar for doing this. Ultimately, we expect to pass around $15,500, equally distributed to those for families.

Once again, thanks to our friends at SOC-F and Duskin-Stephens Foundation. Richard King also donated his skills to produce the images we used. But ultimately, none of this would have been possible with out the generous donation of the custom ADM UIC MOD2 carbine by American Defense MFG and optic by Aimpoint!

SOC-F Is Raffling A Custom SSD/ADM Rifle To Raise Money For The Familes Of The Four 3rd Group Soldiers Killed In Niger

Friday, December 8th, 2017

A few months ago, William Phebus of American Defense MFG approached me about doing a custom SSD rifle to raffle for charity. As a Veteran, I jumped at the opportunity and told him to start working on the project and I’d identify a charity. Unfortunately, one presented itself not long after. Four Soldiers, deployed to the African nation of Niger and assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 3rd Special Forces Group (Airborne), were killed during a brutal gun battle with Muslim extremists. I was assigned to the Military Intelligence Detachment of 2/3 SF, serving on a SOT-A from 1990-96. Although I am long retired and never knew any of those men, we share a kinship of common service. And, as a husband and father, I am always concerned about the families who lose someone dear to military service.


SSG Bryan C. Black, SSG Jeremiah W. Johnson, SSG Dustin M. Wright, and SGT La David T. Johnson, you are not forgotten.

Speaking with friends currently serving in 3rd Group, I know that their loss really hit the Bush Hogs hard and I vowed to do something to support each of the families of those men. I want to make sure that every child has a Christmas and the families have bridge funds to help offset any unforeseen expenditures associated with their loss. I hope you’ll join me in this endeavor.

ADM did the heavy lifting and came through with a great rifle package, which includes accessories I use on my rifle. I will always be in their debt for thier efforts. Since I use a T2 red dot sight on my rifle, the great folks at Aimpoint donated one to the cause. I turned to my friends at the Special Operations Care Fund (SOC-F) to help with the raffle and at the Duskin-Stephens Foundation to distribute the funds once the fundraiser is finished. Richard King Photography donated these fantastic photos of the build to the cause as well. Neither I, nor any of of these companies, are taking a dime from this fundraiser. They do it because they support the men and women who defend this great land.
