During his lifetime, LTC Mario “Sugar Bear” Carazo dedicated himself to helping others. A Cobra helicopter pilot and squadron leader, Mario was selfless in his encouragement, support, personal guidance, and sound advice. To honor his legacy and continue his commitment to serving others, Mario’s wife, Jen, established the Sugar Bear Foundation to support the surviving spouses and children of fallen U.S. military personnel by providing assistance and supporting programs to meet their immediate and ongoing need and to foster their personal, emotional, and social well-being.

Dog Tag Legacy Fund is proud to support the Sugar Bear Foundation by assisting in the establishment of the foundation itself and providing a DTBF grant to develop Sugar Bear’s communications and marketing needs (website, social media, etc.) and to support the foundation’s fundraising events and efforts.
