Major Dan Rooney is the founder of the Folds of Honor Foundation, a veteran F-16 Fighter Pilot with 3 combat tours in Iraq, the founder of The Patriot Golf Club, a PGA Professional, and author of A Patriot’s Calling- Living Life between Fear and Faith.

Dan Rooney was the only motivational team speaker for the U.S. Ryder Cup team in Wales, an amazing opportunity that has been historically reserved for Presidents.

Folds of Honor, a non-profit organization, provides scholarships to the spouses and children of military service members disabled or killed in action. In five short years, Folds of Honor has raised over $22 million and awarded nearly 4000 scholarships to the family members KIA or disabled in combat.

A Major in the Air National Guard and a decorated military aviator, Dan Rooney is a two-time recipient of the Top Gun award and was honored with the Spirit of Attack award as a top graduate of F-16 training. Major Rooney has received many decorations to include the Air Force Commendation Medal, Air Medal, Anti-terrorism Medal, Combat Readiness Medal and Air Expeditionary Medal.

For his service and patriotism, Major Dan Rooney was presented the White House’s Presidential Volunteer Service Award by President George W. Bush, the Air National Guard’s Distinguished Service Medal, the Air National Guard’s Directors Service Award, and the Ellis Island Medal of Honor. He was honored at The Masters Invitational with the William D. Richardson Award for his outstanding contributions to golf and received the PGA of America’s first-ever Patriot Award. Dan Rooney has been recognized as one of People Magazine‘s Heroes of the Year, Money Magazine’s Hero of the Year, and ABC World News Tonight‘s Persons of the Year. He is a Significant Sigma Chi and was featured on NBC World News Making a Difference report.

Dan Rooney founded The Patriot, a Robert Trent Jones, Jr.-designed golf course in Tulsa, Oklahoma. It is currently ranked 42nd among American golf courses in Golf Week’s Modern Top 100. The Patriot is home to the Folds of Honor Foundation headquarters.

From the outside, flying an F-16 jet looks like a very independent act, as it is one pilot maneuvering one plane. But when you go into combat, fighter pilots in a squadron must form one unit that has a common mission working toward a common objective. As a pilot who served three tours of combat in Iraq, Major Dan Rooney knows the importance of working as a team when the stakes could not be higher.

In his powerful presentations, Rooney highlights the importance of personal accountability, working together and ultimately having the backs of your team when you are on the line. Having dedicated his life’s mission to founding and running Folds of Honor—a non-profit organization that provides scholarships to the spouses and children of military service members disabled or killed in action—Major Rooney speaks with authority as someone who lives his life in service of those who have served. Speaking with conviction and as a man who has also found success in the military, philanthropy and professional golf, Dan Rooney’s life experiences demonstrate lessons of faith, teamwork, trust, compassion and triumph.
