The Third Fold Memorial Conferment and The Third Fold Veterans Honor Roll honor current members and/or veterans of the military, who have served our nation in the highest traditions of America and its Armed Forces. The conferment and honor roll bear the name, "The Third Fold," representing the third of twelve special memorial folds made during the Flag Folding Ceremony as developed by the United States Air Force Academy. The third fold of the flag ceremony honors and remembers a veteran who has left the ranks of armed service, having given part of his or her life in defense of America to further the mission of global peace.

Third Fold Memorial Conferment
The Third Fold Memorial Conferment is one of three major awards given by the Thirteen-Fifty Foundation. Through the Third Fold Memorial Conferment, the Thirteen-Fifty Foundation honors current members and/or veterans of the armed services for their legacy of service to America. The conferment is conferred upon a current
member or veteran(s) of the armed services whose selfless service left a lasting imprint on the nation and the world. The conferment is the highest recognition award given by the foundation to a veteran or current member of the U.S. Armed Services.

The Third Fold Veterans Honor Roll
Through The Third Fold Veterans Honor Roll, the Thirteen-Fifty Foundation recognizes on a daily basis veterans for their service to America. Unlike the Third Fold Memorial Conferment which recognizes a single individual or entity annually, the honor roll provides an opportunity for all veterans to be remembered in a special and unique way. The honor roll provides individuals interested in honoring a loved one who has served or is serving in the U.S. military the opportunity to honor them for their service to the nation, by adding their name to the list of fellow servicemen and women.
