While you were out cooking hot dogs and pounding cheap beers to celebrate the three-day weekend, Brian Wilson, the Giants relief pitcher, observed Memorial Day by establishing the largest Air Force scholarship in history.
Wilson set up The Michael Wilson Scholarship in honor of his late father who was a member of the Air Force. Although the amount isn't being released, the scholarship is the largest ever given by one individual, according to news outlets. It will be awarded to two air force members annually for the next five years.
Wilson, who grew up on the Air Force base, says the scholarships should be given to the men and women in the Air Force who demonstrate leadership qualities and have overcome obstacles.
