THE TASK DEVELOPMENT GROUP (TASKDEV)
The TASKDEV is a Nonprofit Organization, established in June 2018, with the Washington Secretary of State. It consists of 4 separate programs that are referred to as “teams” for ease of understanding. Each team has a unique mission and is based on 4 common interests of the military, and veteran service member.
Jump / Climb / Gun / Dive
Within the teams we have sponsored Team Members that train consistently in their specific areas of interest to host awesome free events for the Veteran and Civilian supporter community.
We provide an outlet for those that are currently serving, that have already transitioned, or civilian supporters to link up for events put on by our teams. The events are a great way for those that are missing the aspect of camaraderie or a sense of purpose from their lives once they transitioned out of service.
In July 2016, 4 teammates from AFSOC met at Skydive Kapowsin, in Shelton WA to jump together. They made the first jump while wearing Ares Clothing T-Shirts and was utilized as a marketing opportunity for the company. With the positive response from the supporters of Ares the idea was conceptualized to create an Ares Jump Team logo and use the proceeds from the sale of shirts featuring the design to fund and sponsor the founding members. Following the successful launch of their first shirt he team decided to get more involved by creating an actual team with a structure, training requirements, and began recruiting other members.
With the positive response from the public, the decision was made to add on other teams from within the SOCOM Community.
Team 1 was in the Pacific North West headquartered in Olympia, WA at Ares HQ. Team 2 was created when a founding member moved to Clovis, NM due to military service. Team 3 was located in Fayetteville, NC and consisted solely of Special Forces Operators.
