Celebrate Flag Day, recognize U.S. military service personnel


Wall of Honor

Flag Day – June 14 – commemorates the adoption of the flag of the U.S. in 1777 and celebrates the founding of the U.S. Army, in 1775.

PennWell Corporation supports the U.S. military and is partnering with the Folds of Honor Foundation to raise money for military families.

The effort is in conjunction with PennWell’s Wall of Honor, a traveling wall highlighting the names of military service personnel (past and present) and displayed at all PennWell power generation events in North America. The wall displays the name, branch and company of each person honored.

The Wall of Honor will be displayed at HydroVision International 2018 June 26 to 28 in Charlotte, N.C., U.S.

PennWell’s partnership with the Folds of Honor Foundation, a nonprofit organization, is an extension of the Wall of Honor and will help further honor the legacy of those listed on the wall. Financial contributions to the Folds of Honor are used to educate the families of military men and women who have fallen or have been disabled while on active duty in the U.S. armed forces.

Founded in 2007 by Major Dan Rooney – an F-16 fighter pilot in the Oklahoma Air National Guard who served three tours of duty in Iraq – Folds of Honor has awarded scholarships in all 50 states, as well as Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, including more than 2,800 in 2016 alone. Folds of Honor is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization.
