Winchester USA Valor

Winchester has expanded its patriotic-themed, limited-edition USA Valor line of ammunition that honors America’s warfighters and first responders. It is now available in .300 BLK, 12-ga. No. 7 1/2 and No. 8 shot, as well as 20-ga. 7 1/2 shot.

Winchester USA Valor ammunition helps support Folds of Honor, a U.S. Veteran’s cause dedicated to honoring the sacrifice of America’s heroes, while giving hope to the bearers of their legacy in the form of educational scholarships.

“Winchester continues to demonstrate its commitment to veterans and first responders across the country with the expansion of USA VALOR limited-edition ammunition,” said Matt Campbell, Winchester vice president of sales and marketing. “It’s a privilege to extend our support to Folds of Honor and support their mission.”

Air National Guard pilot Lt. Col. Dan Rooney established Folds of Honor after witnessing a somber sight upon returning to the United States from a second deployment in Iraq. The body of a service member killed in action there was returned on the commercial flight he was on, and his family was waiting. The sight of the man’s young son stirred him into action, and the non-profit organization was established in 2007.

Programs it offers today include a children’s fund, with awards of up to $5,000 a year. A minimum of a 2.0 GPA must be maintained. Tutoring services and private schools qualify. A higher-education fund is also available to help spouses and older children pursuing a bachelor’s degree. Awards are up to $2,500 per term. In all, the organization has issued more than 44,000 scholarships since 2007. Less than one percent of funds collected are used to administer the group’s efforts.

From World War I through modern-day deployments, Winchester has been a steadfast supporter of U.S. soldiers. In addition to supplying the U.S. soldier with the ammunition they depend upon, Winchester also generously supports military and veteran causes as a way to thank those who serve and to honor the fallen.
