The Little Warriors A Brian Bill Project is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing outdoor adventure to the children of Fallen Navy SEALs and Naval Special Warfare Personnel.
The Project seeks to teach these children about the skills and spirit of some of our nation’s greatest heroes through mentorship, support and most importantly – adventure!
The Little Warriors is founded by Amy Bill Kutney and husband Chad. The Project is inspired by United States Navy SEAL Brian R. Bill. Brian was Amy’s little brother, and a passionate outdoorsman who embraced all challenges and strove for excellence in all he did. He lived his life to a higher standard and was revered for his Leadership, Teamwork, and Honor both in life, and in his service to our Country. Brian continuously went out of his way not only for his family, but also for those of his Navy SEAL brothers. Whether it was lending out his surfboard for lessons, or teaching his niece to dunk Oreo’s into milk, Brian had a heart that never stopped giving. Brian epitomizes, in every way, what it means to be a hero.
Brian was killed in action in Afghanistan on August 6, 2011 at the age of thirty-one. He rests in Arlington National Cemetery alongside many of his teammates who also perished in action on that day.
The Little Warriors A Brian Bill Project will honor Brian’s Legacy by giving back to the children of Fallen Naval Special Warfare. These “Little Warriors” will have the unique opportunity to learn about the skills and the spirit of some of our nation’s greatest heroes through mentorship, support and most importantly – adventure!

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
-Theodore Roosevelt, 1910
