The Sugar Bear Foundation was formed in honor of Lieutenant Colonel Mario “Sugar Bear” Carazo.
Sugar Bear made the ultimate sacrifice July 22, 2010, when his AH-1W Super Cobra was shot down while conducting combat operations in Afghanistan.
The mission of the foundation is to support the surviving spouses and children of fallen United States military personnel by providing assistance to support programs which meet their immediate and ongoing needs and foster their personal, emotional, and social well-being. We do so in a variety of ways, such as our scholarship, special events and with a grant and internship program (that we are hoping to launch in the coming months) to name a few.
