In support of veterans today and every day, Flag & Anthem is proud to partner with Folds of Honor and Dierks Bentley for the third consecutive year to create this new and exclusive Folds of Honor Charity Tee. 100% of proceeds will be donated to Folds of Honor, a charity providing educational scholarships to spouses and children of America's fallen and disabled service-members.
In 2007, Major Dan Rooney, an F-16 Fighter Pilot in the Oklahoma Air National Guard, realized upon returning home from his second tour of duty in Iraq the reality military families face when impacted by war, and thus Folds of Honor was founded. Using the motto “Honor Their Sacrifice. Educate Their Legacy,” Folds of Honor has been able to award over 35,000 scholarships since inception.
At Flag & Anthem, we appreciate our troops and we are thrilled to participate in raising more money for Folds of Honor. This is also a very important cause for Dierks Bentley who said, "I am on the road two, three days or a couple weeks at a time, and that seems like a long time to be away from my family. Our service men and women spend months and years away at a time, so on the most basic level that huge sacrifice is just the beginning of what they do every day for this country." Both Bentley's father and grandfather served in the Army, and he is quick to point out that, "it is a privilege for me to help with their [Folds of Honor] commitment to provide scholarships to these spouses and children."
