Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom Scholarship
Robert and Cynthia Hoehl established this scholarship in 2006 to honor the men and women of the U.S. armed forces and National Guard who have served or are serving in Operation Enduring Freedom or Operation Iraqi Freedom. In particular, the Hoehls are honoring the patriotism, moral fiber, and commitment to peace that these men and women demonstrate through their service to America and its citizens.
