The Folds of Honor organization was founded in 2007 by Major Dan Rooney, in order to support the families of fallen and disabled servicemen and women. From the company's mission statement: "Of the one million-plus dependents adversely affected by deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, nearly nine out of 10 do not qualify for federal scholarship assistance. Folds of Honor seeks to meet this need by providing annual educational scholarships to the military families of those who have been killed or disabled while in active duty. These help support private education tuition, tutoring and educational summer camps for children K-12, as well as higher education tuition assistance for spouses and children. Since its founding in 2007, the organization is proud to have awarded over 7,500 scholarships, including over 2,000 in 2014 alone."
Bushnell is a major supporter of the Folds of Honor foundation and will cross the $1 million mark in donations this year. At the SHOT Show 2015, Bushnell presented a check for $364,500 to Folds of Honor, and retired Army Major Ed Pulido accepted on behalf of the foundation. He presented Bushnell with a statue to thank them for their support, and gave a short but inspiring and patriotic speech.
