The mission of The 31Heroes Project is to raise money and awareness through social and athletic events to support the families of Extortion 17 and honor their legacy by funding the treatment of traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder.
On August 6, 2011, a tragedy shook the military community and Americans everywhere. In a single instance, America lost 30 military service members; 25 American Special Operations personnel, 5 United States Army National Guard and Army Reserve crewman, and one U.S. military K-9- when a CH-47 Chinook helicopter, call sign Extortion 17, was downed in Afghanistan. In the wake of the unimaginable tragedy, a mission was born.
