The Lt Col Theodore TURTLE Wilson Scholarship will be an annual scholarship awarded to the FALCON FOUNDATION, a 501(c)(3) whose purpose is to provide scholarships to College or Preparatory Schools for motivated young people seeking admission to United States Air Force Academy and subsequent career in the Air Force.
It is our desire and intent for this scholarship to inspire ROCKSTAR individuals to become the best human beings they can be in their careers in the United States Air Force and eventually pass on their acquired gifts of duty, strength, love, friendship, knowledge, endurance, and compassion which were at the core of TURTLE Wilson, essentially the “TURTLE Effect™.”
