Major Dan Rooney, an F-16 Fighter Pilot in the U.S. Air Force Reserve, has committed to spend his life changing the future of America’s grieving spouses and children. In 2007, he formed the Folds of Honor Foundation; a 501C-3 nonprofit organization dedicated to providing educational scholarships to the families of these heroic Americans. Folds of Honor provides educational scholarships to the children and spouses of those fallen or disabled while serving our nation.
