A few days ago I read about Budweiser’s recent release of their new Freedom Reserve Red Lager, a summer edition beer influenced by George Washington’s own recipe found in his military journal from 1757. And as much as I love beer 🍺, that’s actually not what this post is about!
The ad highlighted how the beer is by veterans, for veterans and for every case purchased, a dollar will be donated to the nonprofit Folds of Honor.
Folds of Honor is a NationwideFolds of Honor is another non-profit organization that provides educational scholarships to the children and spouses of our fallen and disabled service members while serving our nation. The charity has many chapters across the country.
I have been affiliated with the Indiana chapter since 2017, and I have had other involvements with them in the past.
From their Mission Statement on their website:
Of the one million-plus dependents adversely affected by deployments, nearly 9 out of 10 do not qualify for federal scholarship assistance. Since 2007, Folds of Honor has carried forth this singular, noble mission. To close the gap, providing educational support to spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service members.
I first learned about the organization through my good friend Dakoto Meyer, Medal of Honor recipient.
The reason I love this organization it honors our veteran’s sacrifice through educating their legacy, they appreciate military families, and they are responsible for giving scholarship opportunities to many young students across the nation as well.
Folds of Honor and their affiliated chapters have many ways you can get involved to support our mission of serving the families of our fallen and disabled service-members. Feel free to visit their chapter pages to learn how you can get involved locally here: https://indiana.foldsofhonor.org/
I plugged a few awesome pics from their social media to illustrate what they’re all about, feel free to give them a follow if you would!
