“Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigues of supporting it.”
- Thomas Paine
Frankie Scott is a proud supporter of the Folds of Honor Foundation. With each item purchased through this website, Frankie Scott donates $1 to this important cause. Through scholarships and other assistance, Folds of Honor gives back to spouses and children of soldiers killed or disabled in service to our country.
Over 700,000 soldiers have been killed or disabled in military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan – Iraqi Freedom, Enduring Freedom and Operation New Dawn. These Service members’ families exceeded the national average of 2.5 dependents per household. As of January 1, 2012 over one million dependents have been adversely affected by multiple deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. More than 87% of the dependents affected by the recent wars do not qualify for federal scholarship assistance. While the federal government provides some support for these families, it cannot succeed alone without proactive civilian organizations to assist.
