$6 for Got Your 6 | Bob Woodruff Foundation

$6 for Got Your 6

Now, we’re asking you to join us in the chorus of Got Your 6.

Join us in telling those who had our backs that we have theirs.

Fighter pilots use clock positioning to inform their direction – 12 o’clock is straight ahead and 6 o’clock is directly behind. That’s how, during WWI, American fighter pilots coined the phrase “I’ve got your 6”. When you heard those four words over the radio, you knew someone had your back.

Over a century later, those words aren’t just for combat. Every day, through our work at the Bob Woodruff Foundation, we are telling service members, veterans, and their families and communities that we’ve got their 6.
