SFC. Stephen Kennedy, the father of four was active in Boy Scouts, Little League, football and soccer as a youth and became a scoutmaster as an adult.

He joined the Marines out of high school in Bremerton, Wash., and became a member of the Tennessee Army National Guard 11 years ago, based in Lenoir City, TN. His wife Tiffany said, “My husband loved his job, he loved his country and he loved his family. He felt that going to Iraq and doing what he was doing, was right, because it was for his family and for his country.”
