2018 Event Recap
Honor - Recognize - Remember
Our goals are to Honor an Alabama Veteran, Recognize Alabama Scholarship Recipients and Remember Alabama’s Fallen Soldiers. We embraced the Game of Golf as a platform to expand public awareness and rally like-minded Alabamians to champion the Folds of Honor mission of providing educational scholarships for the children and spouses of military service members who have fallen or were disabled while serving our great nation. More than 87% of the dependents affected by the recent wars do not qualify for federal scholarship assistance. Combining the financial commitment from our corporate partners, business and political leaders, military members along side individual patriots we will meet that challenge.
Recognize Alabama Scholarship Recipients
During the 2017/2018 Academic periods, the Folds of Honor awarded 110 Alabama Families educational scholarships totaling $455,000.
Remember Alabama's Fallen
Our focus on Monday during the Patriot Shootout Opening Ceremonies is to remember and recognize the 119 Alabama soldiers who have fallen in military operations while serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. As Americans, we feel a collective duty to honor those who have sacrificed by serving the families they leave behind. FREEDOM IS NOT FREE!
The 7th Fold
The 7th Fold of our flag is a tribute to our armed forces, for it is through the armed forces that we protect our country and flag against all enemies. In honor of their service and sacrifice, we invited 15 Alabama Veterans to join us for a round of golf as our guest during the Patriot Shootout of Alabama on Monday March 19th.
