Winchester Ammunition has pledged $100,000 to the Folds of Honor Foundation, which provides educational scholarships to the spouses and children of fallen or disabled service members of the U.S. armed forces. Watch the video here.
“Winchester has proudly supported our U.S. Warfighters for more than 100 years on battlefields around the world. We are thankful for the opportunity to take this one step further to support the families of those heroes through our partnership with Folds of Honor,” said Winchester President Brett Flaugher.
To commemorate this partnership, Winchester recently launched a limited-edition USA VALOR collection of military-inspired ammunition. USA VALOR pays tribute to American fighting forces while supporting Folds of Honor and providing support for the bearers of their legacy through educational scholarships.
“We are so grateful for the patriots at Winchester and for the company’s generous support,” said Lt. Col. Dan Rooney, founder and CEO of Folds of Honor. “Winchester recognizes and addresses the needs of the military families we serve. These students deserve our help, and we’re thankful for Winchester’s commitment.”
Winchester remains steadfastly focused on our heritage of integrity, quality and reliability serving the U.S. Warfighter—in peace and in battle. You may learn more about the company's support of military and veteran causes at Winchester.com/USAValor or Facebook.com/WinchesterOfficial.
