Back in 2007, Lt. Col. Dan Rooney started the Folds of Honor program from the comfort of his garage. From the time he started this Non-profit to where it is now, the mission has never wavered. The whole goal/mission for Folds Of Honor is to raise funds to provide educational scholarships to spouses and children of wounded or killed military service members. Over the last 13 years, FOH has been lucky enough to provide 29,000 scholarships to the tune of $145 Million!
Rooney commissioned as an officer in 2000. He is a career fighter pilot and was honored with the Spirit of Attack award as a top graduate of F-16 training and is a two-time recipient of the Top Gun award. As an F 16 fighter pilot (1800 hours) he completed three combat tours of duty in Iraq and is a decorated aviator. His honors include the Air Force Commendation Medal, Air Medal, Anti-terrorism Medal, Combat Readiness Medal and Air Expeditionary Medal.
