Navy SEAL Museum Announces New Trident House Retreat

Fort Pierce, Fla. – July 8, 2020 – The Navy SEAL Museum is pleased to announce the acquisition of a new Trident House respite house. The new location will continue to be used for Special Operations and their families as a complimentary refuge. In addition to the preservation of history and the education of the public, the Museum’s mission is to support the Special Operations community through its Trident House Charities Program. Comprised of four pillars, the Trident House Charities Program utilizes its respite house to host Gold Star Families, Special Operations Forces Families in need of time together, and active duty Special Operations individuals seeking sabbatical.

“The Trident House is central to the Museum’s mission,” said Rick Kaiser, Executive Director of the Navy SEAL Museum. “We continue the legacy of our Frogmen by preserving their history at the Museum, and we honor their heritage by taking care of their families moving into the future. This new house is able to comfortably accommodate our guests who visit Fort Pierce, and it is conveniently located a stone’s throw from our Museum.”

Donated to the Museum in 2012, the former Trident House is located in Sebastian, Florida. The Trident House has filled a great need, hosting more than 350 families to date at the riverfront home. The new location–replacing the former–remains on the Indian River with access to the water in Fort Pierce, Florida.

About Trident House
Established in 2012, the Trident House provides a respite for individuals and family members throughout the Special Operations community. It was founded for the purpose of providing families who serve a place to come together in recovery, reflection, or relaxation. Located on the Indian River in Fort Pierce, Florida, the Trident House serves as a critical and complimentary reprieve for the families of Special Operations who have been killed in the line of duty, as well as a retreat for those still serving. The serene environment offers families a place of peace, privacy, and leisure. The Trident House is maintained by volunteers and funded entirely by generous contributions of donors.

About The Trident House Charities Program
The Trident House Charities Program is the heart of the Navy SEAL Museum’s mission, serving the families of Naval Special Warfare. Comprised of four pillars–a respite house in Fort Pierce, Florida; the Scholarship Program for the higher education of children of Special Operations individuals; the K9 Project for the donation of working dogs; and Direct Family Support to fill in gaps beyond Federal support– the Trident House Charities Program is funded by the generous contributions of donors who care for those who have served, those who continue to protect our country, and for the families who have lost loved ones to combat or related training.

About The Navy SEAL Museum
The National Navy UDT-SEAL Museum is the only museum dedicated solely to preserving the history of the U.S. Navy SEALs and their predecessors. Located in Fort Pierce, Florida, the Museum resides on the training grounds of the original Navy combat divers, the Frogmen. Built to honor the men who served with fortitude and ingenuity, the Navy UDT-SEAL Museum first opened its doors on Veterans Day in 1985. From humble beginnings, the facility has experienced tremendous growth, achieving national stature in 2007. The main objective of the Museum remains the promotion of public education by providing the opportunity to explore the history of the Navy SEALs through interactive exhibits, while honoring the fallen at the SEAL Memorial and caring for those warriors’ families through Trident House Charities.
