Glock Makes $100K Donation to SOWF College Scholarship

The Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF) provides college scholarship grants to the children of fallen special forces members.

The Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF) has gotten a six-figure boost to its college scholarship thanks to Glock, Inc.

Glock has donated $100,000 to the  SOWF college scholarship.

The SOWF provides college scholarship grants, based on need, along with financial aid and educational counseling to the children of Special Operations personnel who were killed in an operational mission or training accident.

The check was given at the annual SOFIC (Special Operations Forces Industry Conference) event. Accepting the funds were SOWF President, retired VADM, Joe Maguire and SOWF scholarship recipient, Dalia Munoz. Munoz is the daughter of Army Sgt. 1st Class Pedro Munoz, who lost his life in Afghanistan in 2005.

Munoz graduated from Davidson College in 2012 with a bachelor’s degree in Religion. She now works on the SOWF staff as a Financial Aid Counselor.

“Glock always supports those who go into harms way,” said Josh Dorsey, Vice President of GLOCK. “Sometimes that includes those who are left behind by fallen family members. By supporting SOWF College Scholarship, we are able to contribute to the success of bright and deserving individuals like Miss Munoz.”
