"Supporting Folds of Honor and spreading awareness of their mission is a way for me to give back to the families of Heroes who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice. I’m blessed to have an opportunity to educate guests of Desert Willow about the amazing achievements the Folds of Honor Family has accomplished so far. Even though over 86% of Folds of Honor’s fundraising efforts directly benefit scholarship recipients, there is an ever-growing need to raise money for qualified unfunded requests. We’ve got work to do and I appreciate everyone’s support!"

"I graduated high school in 2002 and had many friends join the military. In 2003 the Iraq war began and my friends were deployed, upon returning from war it was when reality set in, on the severity of the situation and how they have sacrificed everything for our freedom. Supporting the Folds of Honor and honoring their sacrifice is very rewarding to me and I am blessed to have the opportunity do so."

"Living in Northern Illinois, the summer time was the best part of the year. The great weather, family functions and no school for kids. The summer holiday that always brought everyone together was July 4th. This time to reflect and be thankful for the opportunity and gifts, that are often taken for granted. When it came time for bed, all of the children would sleep in one big room. Above the doorway threshold rested the folded up and encased flag of Warren Ray Beattie (my great Grandfather).

I first encountered the Folds of Honor while in College at Ferris State University. At the time, we had a small event, which raised a few thousand dollars for this unknown charity to me. My curiosity sparked me to do some research and dive deeper into this wonderful cause. I was enlightened to find what the Fold of Honor does and how they touch Military families of wounded and fallen Heroes.

Their slogan of “Honor their sacrifice. Educate their legacy” is something that each person can stand behind."

The Folds of Honor mission is to provide educational scholarships to spouses and children of America's fallen and disabled service-members. The motto is simple: Honor Their Sacrifice. Educate Their Legacy.
