Thanks in part to a loveable little beagle named Spike, the United States Navy SEALS are getting some badly needed help in the form of a sporting clay shoot to benefit the Navy SEAL Foundation. It is an event that was organized last year after Brian Kimball learned that the previous owner of his newly adopted dog was a Navy SEAL killed in action.

"After we got Spike, we did a little research on the Navy SEALS, just out of curiosity, said Kimball. " And I came across the Navy SEAL Foundation website and saw that they have all kinds of charity and fundraiser for the SEALS and their families.."

In its first year, the shoot raised more than 7-thousand dollars for the foundation. That money is used for family support services, including memorial-related expenses, scholarships and tuition assistance for dependents. The foundation also supports morale building efforts such as children's sports days and campouts.

For Rich Brunner of Newport, the shoot will be more than a fun afternoon. His son has been part of the Naval Special Warfare community for 13 years.

"I think the big thing is that this means that somebody cares,"said Brunner. "Somebody recognizes what these men and women are doing in our armed forces. The things that we don't see every day, or we don't even know about."

From a five station elevated stand or at stops along a winding ground course at the Central Penn Sporting Clay facility, it'll be a multi-gun salute to those at the tip of the spear in the war against global terrorism.

"After all, at the end of the day," said Kimball, "they're the ones that keep us safe and let us do things like come out here and shoot and enjoy our every day life and routine."

And Brunner added about his son, "He's pretty much in your thought every day."
