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 private and higher education of children of Special Operators; 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.
