Established in 2015, Van Hipp donates 100% of his proceeds from his new book, The New Terrorism: How to Fight It and Defeat It to The Van Hipp Fallen Heroes Scholarship Fund which will award scholarships to Guardsmen wounded in action in the War on Terror.
This new initiative is administered by the National Guard Educational Foundation.
Since September 11, 2001, nearly 800 Guardsmen have made the ultimate sacrifice in support of the Global War on Terrorism. These heroes left behind more than 1,000 children. Established in 2011 and underwritten by DRS Technologies, Inc., the DRS Guardian Scholarship Fund provides college scholarships to the children of National Guardsmen who have been lost in service to our nation since 9/11. Over the past four years, NGEF has awarded 44 scholarships to students through the DRS Guardian Scholarship Fund.
