It all started some years back in Michigan when then Major Dan Rooney wanted to do more for his fellow military veterans.
Rooney was not only a fighter pilot in the military, he was a PGA Section golf professional in the state of Michigan.
What started out the first year as a golf outing that raised a little more than six thousand dollars, has now grown into an organization called the Folds of Honor that raised over 7 million dollars last year.
That money helps out military families with scholarships to colleges, and more.
That money comes from the tireless efforts of people like USA Major Ed Pulido, who was injured in combat in the Middle East.
Pulido who was honored by both generals and two U.S. Presidents, is coast-to-coast constantly raising funds for the FOH.
This year like in past years the Folds of Honor held a special event at the PGA Show, announce the contributions and the money raised.

Folds of Honor raises many of it’s dollars from National Patriot Golf Day over Labor Day weekend, mark it on your calendar, and visit Foldsofhonor.org for more information.
