Golfing for a Cause: 'Patriots' Cup' to Help Children of Fallen Soldiers
Dan Rooney, CEO of Folds of Honor, said his organization is sponsoring a golf tournament to help the families of fallen soldiers.
The "Patriots' Cup" is being held Monday in Owasso, Okla., and will raise money for scholarships so that the spouses or children of those who gave their lives can get an education.
Rooney told Steve Doocy that a decade ago, he was on a flight where the twin brother of a man who was killed in battle was bringing the soldier's remains home.
He said he felt compelled to start the organization on the spot.
Since then, it has outgrown his Broken Arrow, Okla., home and has offered 13,000 scholarships since its inception.
"May we never leave a family behind on the field of battle," Rooney said.
Doocy will join Rooney at the charity event, on "the most patriotic golf course" in the region.
