Special Operations Wounded Warriors SOWW

Brownells Commitment to Veterans

As a veteran-owned company, we at Brownells believe that supporting active-duty servicemen, servicewomen and veterans is among our highest and most important calling.

Whether it's providing products and equipment to help keep our troops safe, offering support to their families while deployed, helping them recover from wounds sustained in battle or providing meaningful careers when their service time is complete, Brownells commits to always being there.

Special Operations Wounded Warriors (SOWW) is a not-for-profit group that provides outdoor experiences and therapeutic retreats, as well as assistance with medical, physical and mental therapies for both veterans and active-duty members of the United States Special Operations Forces who have been wounded in action. SOWW is funded by donations and is run and operated by unpaid volunteers. Its low operating costs mean over 93% of all donated funds directly support the veterans and active duty personnel SOWW serves. SOWW is an independent organization with its own board and bylaws, and does not receive funding from other groups. For more information, visit

Staff Sergeant Bobby Dove - SOWW Board Member

Retired Staff Sergeant Bobby Dove served as a Green Beret in the US Army Special Forces. On June 9, 2012, SSG(R) Dove was injured by an IED while driving a dirt bike on combat patrol in Afghanistan, resulting in amputations of his right hand and leg, as well as many other life threatening injuries. Through hard work, determination and the support of his wife, Bobby has made significant progress in his recovery.

Since medically retiring in 2014, Bobby has been actively involved with nonprofit organizations that strive to help wounded service members return to the outdoors, strengthen and rebuild family relationships, and receive proper medical treatment.

He currently serves on the Board of Directors for Special Operations Wounded Warriors and is a Team 43 Sports Warrior. He has vowed to continue to succeed and take his life and recovery into his own hands. He also owns and operates "Hooligan Charters", an inshore fishing charter service in Destin, FL. Check here on November 10th to see Bobby's incredible story brought to you by Brownells and theCHIVE.
