Webster Golf Folds of Honor

Webster University golf team is honoring fallen serviceman Sean Patrick ‘Sully’ Sullivan and his family through the Folds of Honor Military Tribute Program (FHMTP)

The Webster University golf team this year is honoring a fallen serviceman through the Folds of Honor Military Tribute Program (FHMTP).

Sean Patrick “Sully” Sullivan, a chief petty officer in the United States Navy, gave his life for his country on July 19, 2012, when his helicopter crashed in Oman during a heavy lift operation. He was a 1990 graduate of Lindbergh High School in suburban St. Louis.

The Folds of Honor Foundation raises money for the families of fallen and disabled soldiers, guided by a vision for every spouse and dependent of a wounded or fallen service member to have the financial opportunity to pursue higher education.

The organization’s FHMTP provides the opportunity for any collegiate golf program to honor a fallen or severely wounded American soldier by having a team member carry a golf bag displaying the name, rank and branch of service of the soldier being honored during the school year. At the end of each season, the golf program will make their best effort to raise funds for the bag with the proceeds benefiting the Folds of Honor.

The Sullivan family presented a personally inscribed Gorlok golf bag, provided by the team, to be used by team members during the 2014-15 season. The presentation was made during a formal event on Aug. 9, when other participating colleges made similar presentations to participating families.
