Wounded Warrior Family Support Family Support High Five Tour With Col. John Folsom

On July 2nd, Col. John Folsom came rolling into town on his 18,000 mile High Five Tour across the country to every state capital (including Hawaii & Alaska) to drum up support for the “Wounded Warrior Family Support” project.

The “Wounded Warrior Family Support” mission is to provide support to the families of those who have been wounded, injured or killed during combat operations. The families of our casualties suffer in many ways: some financially, some psychologically.

Wounded Warriors Family Support mitigates their trauma by allowing them to find peace and solace as a family once more in family-friendly resorts that we provide free of charge. The resort condominium that we own in Orlando, Florida are quiet havens where war torn families can reunite and become stronger.

Please Support the families of our Wounded Warriors by making a donation today! Here is a link to their website…

The Central Virginia Mustang Club had the honor of meeting Col. Folsom at Richmond Ford. Many of us made donations and signed his 2011 Ford Shelby Mustang GT500. Richmond Ford also gave a generous donation along with many of their employees.

When the time came for Col. Folsom to hit the road the Central Virginia Mustang Club had eight Mustangs escorting him down the highway. Most of the Mustang had peeled off by the time they got to Petersburg except for three of us; we escorted him to South Hill, Virginia.

CVMC wishes Col. Folsom and “Wounded Warrior Family Support” happy trails on the rest of his journey.
