Folds of Honor Foundation partnered with local car dealership

Posted: Updated:

Lawton_A soldier's life is dedicated to service but when that soldier is injured in battle outside help is often needed.  Retired Major Ed Pulido knows this all too well. He shared his story with the sales staff at a Lawton car dealership today. 

After being hit by a roadside bomb and losing his leg, he wasn't sure how he would support his family. Pulido says that's where the Folds of Honor Foundation stepped in. With help from local organizations, the foundation provides educational assistance to families of disabled or fallen soldiers.

"I have always understood that freedom is not free and we must always take care of the enlisted and non-commissioned officers. That they are the backbone of our military, and as an officer I have a duty and responsibility to take care of them and their families," said Pulido.

Jim Glover Chevrolet has partnered with Folds of Honor to help soldiers in need.  The dealership will donate $100 for each vehicle sold during the month of May.  They hopes to raise $75,000 for the foundation.
