Rooney, a 20-year combat aviator, said Folds of Honor has given 16,000 scholarships to the spouses and children of fallen military members since its founding.
"Listen to the rumble of the [American] flags as the wind goes through them," Rooney said, standing on the green with Doocy and Crawford. "That's freedom."
Crawford said Rite Aid has donated millions to the organization, and helped construct a hot air balloon quilted with messages from children to their military heroes.
