Update February 2022 – Spire continues to support the military through donations and SCRA compliance. In August 2021, Spire contributed to the LT. Michael P. Murphy Memorial Scholarship Foundation as an ongoing effort to support nonprofit organizations honoring fallen Special Operations heroes killed in action. Also in August, Spire further demonstrated our commitment to service members by discussing Spire Recovery Solutions’ compliance with the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act, which ensures that Spire identifies and protects those who qualify for SCRA protection.
May 2021 – Spire Recovery Solutions is continuing its support of fallen Special Operations Veterans and their families with a recent contribution to Naked Warrior Project, a nonprofit organization that helps to preserve the memory of the fallen while providing support for their families.
Naked Warrior Project was founded by retired Navy SEAL John Owens in honor of his younger brother, Ryan Owens, a fellow Navy SEAL killed in action on January 29, 2017, on a successful mission against Al Qaeda militants in Yemen. Ryan served in the Navy for 18 years, including 12 combat tours. The 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundation based in Florida holds events locally and nationwide including fishing tournaments, golf tournaments, memorial dinners, and beach runs yearly to raise funds for its mission “to honor fallen Navy SEALs and Special Operations warriors that have sacrificed their lives for our freedom.”
Naked Warrior Project works to educate citizens and build awareness of the courageous sacrifices made by warriors such as Mr. Owens, to memorialize their lives and legacies with physical memorials in their hometowns, and to connect families walking through similar paths of loss. In addition to helping Gold Star Families remain connected to community support, the foundation provides grants to support the Gold Star children specifically.
“Naked Warrior Project has an interesting and important story of origin. I think Ryan Owens’ story in particular is the type that too often goes untold or unheard. We need to remember that the cost of war includes those who bravely sacrificed everything and paid the ultimate price for the privileges and freedoms we are so fortunate to enjoy in our country. Not only do their legacies deserve to be recognized and remembered, but we also owe it to their families to help fill in the gaps of the space left behind by these courageous Special Operations warriors who gave their lives in service to and in the protection of our country. We’re glad to be able to contribute to this foundation and its mission,” stated Joseph Torriere, President at Spire Recovery Solutions.
Spire Recovery Solutions was co-founded by Jacob Torriere and Joseph Torriere, twin brothers who are both veterans and steady supporters of several similar organizations working to support military families of fallen special operations warriors.
