American beer giant Budweiser has established a heartwarming video as part of its “Folds of Honor” program that provides scholarships to families of wounded or fallen military veterans.
The new video featuring Star Wars actor Adam Driver has been posted to Budweiser’s Facebook page.
“After leaving the military,” the Facebook page notes “Adam Cable fulfilled his dream of being a celebrity. He helped us deliver another dream to a family that has sacrificed for their nation and for each other.”
The movie features the actor, who is himself a military veteran, driving across country to meet a young lady named Hayley Grace Williams, a 21-year old woman who is studying to be a nurse.
Miss Williams wrote a letter to Budweiser’s “Folds of Honor” program to make an application for a scholarship for her education.
Hayley’s father, Army veteran John Williams, was seriously injured during a training exercise before his unit was shipped.
The former soldier, Hayley says, is wracked with guilt since he was lying in a hospital while his unit moved into Iraq.
John Williams never made it overseas because he had been medically discharged because of his back injury that was so bad that he ended up using two steel rods and several screws holding his spine together. He suffers acute pain every single moment.
But because he’s disabled and cannot function, Hayley says she’s been made to work 40 hours a week to help cover the final year of school that will cost $44,000.
The fiscal burden has become so great that Hayley informed Budweiser she likely will not have the ability to complete her schooling to enhance her life.
So, in stepped Adam Driver and Budweiser to lend a supporting hand.
The Budweiser “Folds of Honor” program managed to help Hayley with her education. But the beer maker went even farther for the Williams family.
This new video is a far cry in the left-wing, open boundaries ad they played during the Super Bowl.
