This open water swim (fixed buoy course) will honor one of America's finest. Aaron Vaughn, a member of DEVGRU (SEAL Team VI), was KIA on Aug. 6th, 2011 when a Chinook helicopter crashed in the Tangi River Valley of Afghanistan. All 30 American warriors on board lost their lives that day. This crash represented the single largest loss of life in Naval Special Warfare history.

The winner of our raffle was drawn Saturday June 28th at the swim. Congratulations to Mr. Tom Colter!

Thank you to everyone who attended our pre swim dinner and charity auction. It was a great success!
