Corporal Kelsee Lainhart was seriously injured in the suicide bombing attack at the Kabul Airport on August 26th while fulfilling her duties to the Marines. Kelsee sustained serious injuries and will have long road of rehabilitation and recovery ahead of her. She is a strong, beautiful, brave young woman with a bright future ahead of her and we know she can do it!!
Words from her Mother: Kelsee realized in her Junior Year of High School that she wanted to become a Marine after a friend of hers ask her to come to “friend” weekend with the National Guard. After returning home from that weekend, she said “I’m joining the Marines, as I want to do more.” And she set her mind that weekend that this is what she was going to do. She spent her entire Senior Year of High School in the Poolee program which mentally and physically trained her for what she’d experience in Boot Camp. She entered Boot Camp right after graduation and before she was 18 years old. She was very determined and wanted to train as much as possible. She had hopes of getting her “jump wings” and “dive wings” and she was super excited about her first deployment. Never did her family expect her to be in Afghanistan, but she had no fear. She felt like she was helping so many women and children in hopes of them having a better future. A day before the accident, she said she was sad about anyone that might be left behind. She is truly a selfless person, a complete badass, and a true hero!!
