Clubs can support military families

MONROE, La. — A new program called Patriot Fishing Days has been launched, as the result of a new partnership between Folds of Honor and B.A.S.S.

Complete details will be available at a special dinner, Nov. 5, at the 2014 Old Milwaukee B.A.S.S. Nation Championship, where Folds of Honor will provide information kits to everyone who is interested.

Patriot Fishing Days can be hosted at any time throughout the calendar year. Your club can host the event, and Folds of Honor will reward the three clubs that raise the most money for the organization at next year's B.A.S.S. Nation Championship.

Folds of Honor supports the spouses and children of men and women who have died or become disabled through their service in the U.S. military. The organization has awarded more than 7,500 educational scholarships to spouses and children since it was founded in 2007.

At the Nov. 5 dinner, championship competitors, their guests and B.A.S.S. Nation leaders will hear special speakers Ginger Gilbert Ravella, a Gold Star Wives of America member, and her son, Greyson, who is a recipient of a Folds of Honor scholarship.

"Together we will help ensure no family is left behind on the field of battle," said Diane Nemecek, director of the program. "I look forward to growing this partnership and supporting the spouses and children of those men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice so we can live in a free country."
