According to Folds Of Honor North Texas Chapter President Mike Beltz,
In the folded flag we see the heavy price of freedom, yet it’s also a symbol of hope, representing the enduring ideals that make this country a beacon of democracy. We chose this logo because it reflects our mission – to honor the sacrifice of America’s heroes, while giving hope to the bearers of their legacy. This folded flag is a constant reminder of those who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom. It inspires us to help equip and educate their loved ones in need of your support.
The Folds of Honor is a 5-Star Charity and gives 91 cents of every dollar donated directly to scholarships in support of our nation’s veterans and their legacy of dedication, bravery and sacrifice. By supporting our annual North Texas Folds of Honor Gala, you will be supporting the Folds of Honor and helping to provide educational scholarships to the families of the disabled and fallen.
In the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan alone, there are close to 1.5 million dependents. Of these dependents, nearly nine out of ten don’t qualify for any federal financial assistance. We hope that we can count on you to help support our cause, to stand with us and remind North Texas that freedom isn’t free.
