“We are so grateful for the patriots at Winchester and for the company’s generous support,” said Lt. Col. Dan Rooney, founder and CEO of Folds of Honor. “Winchester recognizes and addresses the needs of the military families we serve. These students deserve our help, and we’re thankful for Winchester’s commitment.”

The Winchester USA VALOR collection of military-inspired ammunition pays tribute to our fighting forces while supporting Folds of Honor and providing support for the bearers of their legacy through educational scholarships. The options for the USA VALOR ammunition are Rifle (5.56), Handgun (9mm), and Shotshell (12 Gauge).

The USA VALOR 9mm ammunition has consistent accuracy that can be trusted for target and range shooting. The ammo has a full metal jacket that provides positive functioning and no expansion. It also has reduced barrel fouling so there are fewer required cleanings and more range time.

“We are thankful for the opportunity to support the families of those heroes through our partnership with Folds of Honor,” said Winchester President Brett Flaugher. “Winchester has proudly supported our U.S. Warfighters for more than 100 years on battlefields around the world and during times of peace.”

Folds of Honor is a nonprofit organization whose educational scholarships support private school tuition or tutoring in grades K-12 as well as postsecondary tuition (two- or four-year college/university, technical, or trade school). Since its start in 2007 by Lt. Col. Dan Rooney, Folds of Honor has awarded more than 29,000 scholarships totaling more than $145 million in all 50 states.

Winchester remains steadfastly focused on our heritage of integrity, quality, and reliability in serving the U.S. Warfighter—in peace and in battle.

Patti Miller is one of the most awesome females in the tactical/firearm (or any) industry. Imagine a tall, hawt, dangerous Laura Ingalls Wilder type with cool hair and a suppressed blaster and you'll be getting the idea. What's interesting is that in addition to being a willing brawler and intrepid adventuress, she's also an Ent/Ogier level gardener and a truly badass baker.
