This site has been established to accept donations on behalf of the family that fallen American hero, Major Thomas Kennedy, leaves behind. All proceeds from this site will be directly deposited into a private trust being established for Major Kennedy's two young children.
On Wednesday August 8, 2012 while on foot patrol in Eastern Afghanistan, Major Kennedy was killed by a Taliban suicide bomber. Major Kennedy is a hero of the highest order having given the ultimate sacrifice to his nation. As a nation we grieve the loss of such a distinguished warrior. As a community we will miss the many contributions Major Kennedy made to make our homes a better place to live. As a family, we will greatly miss our Tommy.
Through the generous contributions of the community, this site is in place to ensure the children of Major Kennedy will receive the necessary educational opportunities to follow in the footsteps of their father. Major Kennedy was a graduate of the West Point Military Academy ('00) and earned a Masters Degree from Columbia University ('10). Major Kennedy greatly valued education and would want to see his children provided the opportunity to understand this value.
In Major Kennedy's memory, a FaceBook community page has been established:
On behalf of Major Kennedy's family, friends, classmates, and fellow servicemen – thank you for your support.
