*The seventh fold is a tribute to our armed forces, for it is through the armed forces that we protect our country and our flag against all enemies, whether they be found within or without the boundaries of our republic.

This is where you will stay connected with all things Folds of Honor, such as impactful partnerships, upcoming events, store promotions and most importantly, the stories of the families you stand with.

Meet Anna Chang, Folds of Honor recipient and daughter of Major Roberta Chang. Anna is a junior at the University of Notre Dame, double majoring in Science-Business and Greek Roman Civilization, minoring in Sustainability.

Anna is outgoing and has a passion for experiencing new things, from traveling to the Galapagos Islands for a research project to cohosting a radio show on the student radio station. She is not afraid to tackle the next big adventure.

“I think that being part of a military family has made me more capable of seizing opportunities and not being afraid to travel somewhere new and embrace a different experience. It has showed me to appreciate the connections I have and never be scared of making new ones. You can have an impact on others everywhere you go and also learn from the sacrifices of those around you.”

Anna plans to have a career in environmental consulting or sustainable design, where she will connect science, policy and ethics to show companies how thoughtful design can positively benefit our health and the environment. It is because of her mother she has the confidence to achieve her goals.

“My mother has taught me by example that perseverance and strong mentality will help you succeed in all aspects of life. My sisters and I have all learned to uphold our values and be strong leaders because she has always reminded us of what we can achieve. She has never let me think less of myself and has always encouraged me to accomplish my goals.”

Folds of Honor Minnesota was thankful to benefit from the Liberty on the Lake benefit concert on Lake Minnetonka on July 28th for the second year in a row. The event was hosted by Snap Fitness and featured country artist Tim McGraw. Over 400 people were in attendance for the intimate event while hundreds of boats lined the lakeshore to enjoy the show. Folds of Honor received a generous donation of $100,000 from the Snap Fitness Foundation.

Freedom Rocks Redneck Riviera Whiskey Launch Party

On July 29th, John Rich of Big & Rich joined Folds of Honor Minnesota for the Minnesota launch of his new Redneck Riviera Whiskey. 150 Folds of Honor supporters gathered for a VIP experience with John Rich, enjoyed whiskey samples and ended the day with a private concert. It was a great day for awareness of our mission as well as a celebration of our great supporter, John Rich!

“ Our local Minnesota partners are the key to our success as we grow in helping more deserving military families! We couldn’t do what we do without their support in spreading our mission.”

Rise Armament

RISE Armament is a proud supporter of Folds of Honor. With one-third of their company being made up of veterans, they are committed to giving back and making a lasting difference in the lives of those who have served.

“To say we’re proud to help out and donate to Folds of Honor is an understatement. Veterans’ families are often overlooked, which is really a shame. Our troops and their families have tremendous courage and have made so many sacrifices. It’s our duty as Americans, as patriots, to take care of them and honor what they’ve all done for us.”
