Folds of Honor
To ensure families who’ve sacrificed so much for our country receive the educational opportunities they deserve. Whether it’s K-12th grade or higher education, we believe the cost of pursuing their academic dreams should not be an additional burden.
How Folds of Honor Began
Folds of Honor began with Lieutenant Colonel Dan Rooney’s flight home from his second tour of duty in Iraq. An F-16 fighter pilot in the Oklahoma Air National Guard, he became painfully aware of the realties families face when a loved one in uniform has fallen or becomes disabled.
As Lieutenant Rooney’s flight landed, the pilot announced they carried the remains of Corporal Brock Bucklin on board. Lt. Rooney watched as Corporal Bucklin’s twin brother walked somberly alongside the flag-covered casket to meet his family on the tarmac. Among them was the deceased Corporal’s young son, Jacob.
Since that night, Major Rooney has committed his life – through the Folds of Honor – to providing scholarships to spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service members. Jacob Bucklin became the first Folds of Honor scholarship recipient in 2007.
In the folded flag we see the heavy price of FREEDOM
Yet, the folded flag also offers a symbol of hope, representing the enduring ideals that make the United States of America a beacon of democracy. The folded flag logo was selected because it reflects the Folds of Honor mission – to honor the sacrifice of America’s heroes, while giving hope to the bearers of their legacy.
Folds of Honor has grown from a vision into a movement. This folded flag is a constant reminder of those who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom. It inspires us to help equip and educate their loved ones in need of our support.
HONOR THIER SACRIFICE. EDUCATE THIER LEGACY.
