SYRACUSE – They're the military group credited with killing Osama bin Laden – the U.S. Navy Seals.
But just like members from every branch of the military, many Seals never make it home.
On Saturday, a Kosciusko County community came together to honor those fallen soldiers with a unique fundraiser.
Drop anchor, go for a swim and watch some aerial acrobatics.
It’s not every day you see Navy Seals parachuting onto Lake Wawasee.
Tom Combs and his family brought out their boat to see the Elite Frogs Parachute team, a group made up of active duty and retired Navy Seals.
“Having been in the service myself, it brings us all together and kind of gives you a warm fuzzy,” said Combs.
But the reason for the show wasn’t for those in the boats or on shore. It was for those who couldn’t be there.
The event raised money for the Navy Seal Foundation which provides assistance for families of fallen Seals.
These kids and their families lives are, when they’re killed, it’s a horrible thing,” said former Navy Seal Bud Stickle.
As the jumpers entertained above, donations were collected from boat to boat, and a large part of the fundraising came thanks to the Elite Frogs.
With a donation of $1,200, 22 people got to experience a tandem jump with the experts.
The Combs didn’t need much convincing to donate.
“Were helping families,” said Combs, who plans on doing a tandem jump himself next year.
“If you’re jumping with the elite, I feel comfortable doing that.”
