About Special Operations Care Fund (SOC-F):
The Special Operations Care Fund (SOC-F) is a 501(c)3 non-profit, 100% volunteer, charitable organization that generates funds for the families of wounded or killed Special Operations Forces (SOF).

Our mission is to “fill in the gaps” of the care of the Special Operations Forces (SOF) community. We raise money via events and unique engagements; linking donors, industry, and SOF end users together. Funds generated from the events support Brain Injury Treatment not covered by Tri-care or the VA, SOF Gold Star Kids Camps, SOF Marriage counseling, and emergency needs as they arise. Once we have covered out internally funded initiatives, we donate like-run charitable organizations that support the Special Operations Community.

We are average American’s who care deeply about the Special Operations Community, and we created SOC-F to make a difference in the lives of the families of those who have given so much.

About American Defense Mfg®:
American Defense Mfg® was founded with an idea and a lot of hard work. What followed was the QD Auto-lock that has become the standard for QD mounting hardware. All American Defense Mfg® products are 100% designed and built in Wisconsin.

All of our products are designed by shooters with one goal in mind – quality.

Moving forward, we have evolved into a premier manufacturer of AR-15 platform rifle, that we consider “The Gentleman’s Work Gun.” With a high level of attention to detail, an eye for style, but a demand for performance, our UIC line of rifles & pistols are serious tools, for serious people.
