Who Was Brian Kennedy

“Brian was a wonderful young man. He had a fierce desire to join the Marine Corps when he was in college and he threw himself at it 100%. He gave his life in an effort to contribute to the freedom of the Iraqi people. We are so very proud of him and of his service to our country.”
