BENEFITING: FOLDS OF HONOR FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: May 17, 2015
I recently had the honor of spending time with Major Dan Rooney, Founder of Folds of Honor. Folds of Honor is a charitable organization that empowers the families of soldiers killed or wounded in battle with educational scholarships and support. The organization is making a real difference in the lives of many, many spouses and children and I am pleased to help support this organization. My goal is to raise enough money for Folds of Honor to provide two scholarships to deserving families across the country.
ABOUT FOLDS OF HONOR
Founded by Major Dan Rooney in 2007, Folds of Honor provides educational scholarships to the spouses and children of service members killed or disabled during U.S. military service.
Major Rooney, a former F-16 pilot who served three tours in Iraq, founded Folds of Honor to ensure that families of fallen service members are never left behind on the field of battle.
More than 1.4 million dependents have been affected by the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq alone, with 85 percent of those not qualifying for federal educational assistance. Without the help of civilian organizations like Folds of Honor, many of these families would not receive aid, despite the immense sacrifice of their fathers, mothers and/or spouses.
