OUR MISSION

ALL SECURE FOUNDATION ASSISTS SPECIAL OPERATIONS ACTIVE DUTY AND COMBAT
VETERANS, AND THEIR FAMILIES, IN RECOVERY OF POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS THROUGH EDUCATION, AWARENESS, RESOURCES FOR HEALING, WORKSHOP RETREATS, AND PTS RESILENCY TRAINING.

OUR STORY

Command Sgt. Major (ret.) Tom Satterly served in the Army for 25 years, 20 of those years were spent in the military’s most secretive and elite Special Operations unit, Delta Force. As an Operator and CSM, Tom fought in and lead countless high profile military missions including Operation Red Dawn (Saddam Hussein’s capture) and the Battle of Mogadishu (Black Hawk Down) which was the longest sustained firefight since Vietnam. That 18-hour firefight ended with Tom, along with several of his team mates, running the Mogadishu Mile to safety.

Although the physical, mental, and emotional toll of war had compounded over the years, Tom never faced his Post-Traumatic Stress symptoms and in 2013 he nearly ended his life. Had it not been a text from his now wife, Jen, he would have joined the 22 veterans who commit suicide every single day.

As Director of Film and Photography of an elite Special Operations training company, Jen embedded with Navy Seals, Green Berets, and Army Rangers in (RMTs) Realistic Military Training exercises sometime for weeks at a time. During this time, she began to notice the same symptoms Tom was battling and began to ask questions. What was being done? Who is helping our warriors on the homefront heal? Who is helping the families with secondary PTS? She didn’t like the answers and became certified in health and wellness to better understand PTS and the body.

Tom and Jen decided something had to be done and the work they did together training and preparing warriors to fight overseas turned into a mission of helping warriors and their families fight the silent war and to heal from it on the homefront. The Satterly’s founded All Secure Foundation in August 2017 as a resource library for helping warriors and their families navigate the maze of treatments and modalities of healing from PTS. They have worked individually with hundreds of warriors and their families and soon became more than a referral website but also a provider of education, awareness, and programs for healing.

In 2019 ASF launched one of the only programs in the country for warrior couples to tackle PTS and Secondary PTS together with Emotionally Focused Therapy through their Special Operations Warrior Couples Retreat Workshops. The program was so successful that they filled all 6 of the retreat workshops in 2020 in a single day. With additional funding, more workshop retreats will be added (to donate to or sponsor a retreat, please visit our DONATE page).

In 2020, All Secure Foundation has also began working directly with Special Operation units and the FRG (Family Readiness Group) by providing PTS Resiliency training at bases across the United States. In addition to working with the DOD, Tom and Jen also speak across the country to provide awareness and education on PTS including Congress, the Senate Committee on Veteran Affairs, The White House Communication Agency, USAA, Lockheed Martin, NAMI, and countless veteran organizations.

Tom Satterly is a highly decorated combat veteran, having served in the Army 25 years, the last 20 in the US Military’s most elite Tier One unit, Delta Force. He has been involved in, and led, some of our nation’s most important military campaigns.

Tom fought in and was portrayed in the Oscar Winning 2001 film: Black Hawk Down which was the longest sustained firefight since Vietnam.

He is the recipient of numerous medals including 5 Bronze Stars, 2 for Valorous acts, and he was the first American to attend German Ranger School after competing against hundreds of soldiers to win the singular honor.

Beyond Tom’s proven experience of leadership and critical decision making skills in high-risk environments, he continues to fight and win his own “silent war” off the battlefield after coming within seconds of taking his own life and becoming a veteran suicide statistic.

His innate strengths of courage, perseverance, and “can do” attitude has saved his life countless times. His willingness to speak openly and honestly of his mental and emotional struggles have saved the lives of others who believed they had to suffer in silence and make it alone or not at all.

JEN SATTERLY,  CO-FOUNDER and CO-CEO

Jen Satterly was an award-winning filmmaker and photographer for 15 years, spending the last three years as Director of Film and Photography of an elite Special Operations training company fully embedded with Navy SEALS, Green Berets, and Army Rangers in large-scale realistic training missions.

During her time embedding with Special Operations warriors, Jen began to see a pattern with the soldiers, sailors, and airmen she worked alongside, some of the very same issues her husband, retired Command Sgt. Major Tom Satterly, was also facing with complex Post-Traumatic Stress. She began searching for answers to help them find a way to constructively deal with PTS and its symptoms which included isolation, anxiety, severe depression, anger issues and a long list of medical challenges. Jen made it her mission to not only help the service member but also the families who often suffer from secondary PTS and are innocent causalities of the longest war.

Passionate about helping warriors and their families heal, Jen stepped out from behind the camera and became a certified health and wellness coach to better understand the biology of PTS. Alongside her husband, Tom, they co-Founded All Secure Foundation and serve as co-CEOs. All Secure Foundation is 501(c)3 non-profit organization serving Special Operation warriors and their families reconnect and heal on the homefront from the trauma of war. Their organization has been recognized as a top rated non profit by Great Nonprofits and has grown to serve thousands of combat families.

Additionally, Jen is the founder of Virago (vəˈräɡō/), a platform for educating and empowering women who are facing the challenges of PTS on the homefront. She is currently writing a book which will be published late 2020 by Post Hill Publishing/Simon and Schuster.
