Description:

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 Annual Aaron Vaughn Memorial Frogman Swim is the primary fundraiser for Operation 300 Camp (extreme sports camp for children of fallen soldiers).

This will be a family-fun day. Events will be planned throughout the morning to entertain your children, including a 50 yard Tadpole Swim, so be sure to bring them along!
