Star Wars Star Adam Driver and Budweiser Beer Release Amazing Video to Help Veterans
American beer giant Budweiser has launched a heartwarming video as part of its “Folds of Honor” program which provides scholarships to families of wounded or fallen military veterans.
The new video featuring Star Wars actor Adam Driver was posted to Budweiser’s Facebook page.
“After leaving the military,” the Facebook page notes, “Adam Driver fulfilled his dream of becoming an actor. He helped us deliver another dream to a family who has sacrificed for their country and for each other.”
The video features the actor, who is himself a military veteran, driving across country to meet a young woman 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 apply for a scholarship for her schooling.
Hayley’s father, Army veteran John Williams, was severely injured during a training exercise before his unit was sent over seas.
The former soldier, Hayley says, is wracked with guilt because he was lying in a hospital while his unit went to Iraq.
