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
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.
